UrbEUROPE is a research and training network. It has the ambition to develop
a meta-project, aimed at linking the outputs of recent and/or ongoing
research in different disciplines involving the urban dimension of Europe.
The flourishing of research projects and networks carrying out empirical
fieldwork on European cities signals the recognition of the crucial
character of this dimension, even though, little effort has been devoted in
building a solid interdisciplinary knowledge basis integrated with a highly
structured training programme. Filling this gap is our main objective.
The establishment of this link will be organised around three main areas of
-The analysis of how global changes and local impacts are conceptualised in
theories and through which methods they are investigated;
-The analysis of how changes impacted on the built environment
(gentrification, sub-urbanization and segregation);
-The analysis of how the changes impacted on the role of local social
policies and governance.
-The investigation of these three areas - highly interrelated one another -
has the main goal of attaining a better understanding of the tension between
identity and change in European Cities (the local-global link), of the
existing  differences and of the directions of change (the
convergence-divergence hypothesis). Each area of investigation, however, has
specific objectives.
