International Networks

At a European and international level, the ILS cooperates with numerous universities and non-university research institutes on a project-by-project basis. This mainly includes EU-funded research projects as well as subject-specific cooperations on socio-spatial inequality research, urban open space development, reurbanisation, planning culture and migration issues.

Formal cooperation agreements are in place with the University of Missouri-St. Louis (USA), Portland State University (USA) and the Swiss Federal Institute for Forest, Snow and Landscape Research (Switzerland).

The ILS is also a member of international networks such as AESOP, EURA, UERA, ENHR etc. and, based on its long-term research strategy, strengthens its professional contacts through its own incoming and outgoing programme. Our international exchange activities, the internationalisation of our empirical research and the institutionalisation of research partnerships will be further deepened in the coming years based on our internationalisation strategy.
Prof. Dr.-Ing. Stefan Siedentop is one of the supervising professors of the international „Spatial Research Lab“ doctoral college.
