Dortmund Conference on Spatial and Planning Research 2022
The 6th Dortmund Conference will take place on February 14th-15th, 2022. The Dortmund Conference on Spatial and Planning Research is jointly organized…
Spatial planning is an interdisciplinary field of research and practice that is influenced by engineering and social science, dealing with the different demands of society on the built and unbuilt environment. In 1968 the history of spatial planning began in Dortmund as an independently institutionalized discipline. Half a century after its founding, the Department of Spatial Planning at the TU Dortmund University is one of the largest planning science institutions in Europe and has been the strongest research Department in Germany for years.
Our 18 research groups offer a wide breadth and depth of content, so that interdisciplinarity lives not only in research projects with other scientists, but also in research and teaching here at the department. In addition to interdisciplinarity, our courses are strongly oriented towards the concept of researchbased learning, at each stage the study is enlivened by important practical elements of project study.
