Centre of Regional Science, Vienna UT
The Centre of Regional Science is part of the Department of Spatial Development, Infrastructure & Environmental Planning at the Vienna University of Technology. The Centre of Regional Science takes Regional Science as an applied planning science. Its scientific understanding is based on relevant approaches from (regional) economy, sociology, economic and social geography, as well as planning and engineering sciences. The scientific staff comes from different scientific disciplines as regional science, planning studies, geography and computer sciences. Thus, the research efforts in form of projects have a broad range, reaching from research topics of urban and regional development issues in Europe to the small scaled evaluation of infrastructure investments or the local evaluation of single properties in real estate markets. In general, research initiatives are based on the funding through corresponding institutions, i.e. different framework research programmes of the EU, national and Viennese institutions or private firms.
