Cities are growing and concentrate an increasing portion of human activities. Understanding the environmental and social impacts of such a trend is of crucial importance to steer urban policy and prepare a more sustainable future. The doctoral candidate will participate in the project SCALE-IT-UP, which is devoted to better understand how the spatial organisation of activities within cities affect urban sustainability. More specifically the project addresses how the relative arrangement of transportation, built-up and non-built land within European city regions affect the aggregate and spatial distribution of environmental impacts. It also aims at identifying whether or not and how intra- urban forms and their related impacts vary with population size, thereby connecting intra-urban research with aggregate urban scaling research.
The project, SCALE-IT-UP (Scaling of the Environmental Impacts of Transport and Urban Patterns) is funded by the Fonds National de Recherche (www.fnr.lu) and run jointly at the University of Luxembourg and LISER (www.liser.lu), under the direction of Prof. Geoffrey Caruso.
