Projects and Partners

According to the individual and collective research interests brought to or developed at the Interdisciplinary Centre by the visiting professors, associate professor, visiting researchers, and students, we enter into project-based research collaborations at local, national, European, and international level based on the relevance of the proposal to our research areas of urban culture and public space. We work with partners who are interested in our approaches and at the same time pursue their own course. In this transdisciplinary and intercultural dialogue, we are discovering common challenges connecting practice and theory. The following research projects and research cooperations are examples for successful acquisition third party funding:
