Spatial Capacity Building

Spatial Capacity Building conducts research into how we can support collectives of citizens, local organizations and local and supra-local governments in jointly reflecting on spatial transformation processes that take place in their everyday environment in order to then start working on these processes with them. We do this mainly through action research, commissioned by local, regional and European governments. We always work together with partners in the field, such as design agencies.
