Der Wissenschaftsfonds FWF Project: CURB

The CURB project builds on the research gap around the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on urbanisation. It investigates the actual impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on people’s residential preferences and satisfaction, as well as on the perceived qualities of locations. Implications of future urbanization trends of cities and regions and eventual normative implications for spatial planning practice can be deduced from these aspects. The project will elucidate the extent to which the Covid-19 pandemic disrupts whole urbanization processes, identify new perceptions of urban quality emerging among residents, and determine whether these will trigger changes in spatial planning practice and culture.
