Connecting Sustainable Cities

Connecting Sustainable Cities

The world's population is becoming concentrated in larger and larger cities. This poses challenges for society. How to keep a city with hundreds of thousands of inhabitants liveable? How many roads are needed and of what type? Where are all of these people to live and work, how do they live together and move around?

How to guarantee the vitality, liveability and accessibility of cities is the central issue within the NWO theme Connecting Sustainable Cities.

Research within this theme focuses on every possible aspect: from accessibility for people, goods and flows of information to the liveability of cities and spatial development.

In all of these areas, NWO is funding innovative, multidisciplinary research, of a high scientific level that has an international orientation.
