Project
The research project Urbanization, Mobilities and Immigration (URMI) analyzes future of urbanization and its drivers, state-of-art and promotion of urban sustainability and resource efficiency, impact of urbanization to regions, and the impact of immigration on urbanization, especially in the largest urban regions in Finland. Mobilities and immigration are themes that go through all research themes. URMI conducts internationally recognized and significant scientific multidisciplinary research with innovative outcomes, substantial societal impact and policy relevance in Finland to respond to the programmatic questions of the Strategic Research Council call Urbanizing Society.
Project
The principal aim of DIVERCITIES is to examine how Europe can benefit from diversity. The project’s central hypothesis is that urban diversity is an asset. It can inspire creativity and innovation. Create cities that are more liveable and harmonious. Stimulate local and national economies and make European cities more competitive.
