Abstract:
COSMOPOLIS of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB) is an interdisciplinary research team focusing on the contemporary ‘urban question’. It explores the processes of ‘glocalisation’ (globalisation and localisation) and the relationship between urbanity, society and culture. COSMOPOLIS looks at cities from both a research- and a design-perspective.

The marine research focuses on solutions for environmental contrasts in coastal areas and analyses of conflicts of uses of coastal resources amongst users and sectors.
