Urban development and mobility

The research work of the Urban Development and Mobility department focuses on the geographical, economic and social dimensions of cross-border metropolitan development carried out in Luxembourg and the Greater Region. Four main themes are thus privileged.

Specifically, these four themes focus on the following areas:

  • The first theme focuses on the functioning of land and property markets as well as housing policies. This observation and analysis work is carried out within the framework of the ‘Observatoire de l'Habitat’
  • The second theme deals with planning and spatial development and examines in particular the process of urban sprawl as well as spatial planning policies
  • The third theme focuses on individuals' mobility practices and behaviours, both in terms of their daily movements and their changes of residence. Taking into account the interactions between daily mobility and residential mobility is part of a reflection aimed at promoting the development of sustainable mobility using modeling and simulation tools
  • The fourth theme focuses on the mechanisms of cross-border metropolitan integration and questions in particular the modalities of the economic development of the border regions, the modes of governance implemented and the role and the meaning of the European borders in these processes
