Aktuelles, PAGE:TUMvCard |

The chair of urban development participated in this years' AESOP conference in Prague, Czech Republic, with three presentations and one poster presentation. Alain Thierstein presented current research in the projects "housing, employment, mobility" as well as civil society participation networks (based on work by Agnes Förster), which met with wide interest. Additionally, Fabian Wenner and Lukas Gilliard presented their Masters' and PhD thesis topics, respectively, which addressed land taxation on the one hand and ways forward in planning education on the other.

The chair is delighted that the paper by Lukas Gilliard and Alain Thierstein "Competencies revisited: An educational approach to conceptualise planning as a boundary discipline" was awarded the best paper prize of the conference. Congratulations!
