Frédéric DURAND holds a Phd in Geography from the University of Paris X-Nanterre (France, under the supervision of Professor Jean-Luc Piermay). The dissertation focused on the border's dynamic and the metropolitan construction of the conurbation of Katowice in Upper Silesia. His first expert contract (2009) still concerned the metropolitan issue in Upper Silesia in the frame of the European program INTERACT. With an international research team, the aim was to compare the regionalization and metropolization processes as well as the economic recovery in France (Valenciennes), Poland (Katowice) and Turkey (Karabück).

During 2009-2010, Frédéric DURAND made his Post-doctorate at the Luxembourg Institute of Socio-Economic Research (LISER). The research project, called CROSSPLANNING, combined three research domains: border studies, spatial planning and urban studies. Its goal was to compare the planning strategies in a cross-border metropolitan context through the study of two case studies: Luxembourg and the Greater Region and the Eurométropole Lille-Kortrijk-Tournai. This post-doctoral research was part of a European project (METROBORDER) funded by ESPON, supported by Luxembourg's national planning authority (DATer) and conducted by eight research institutions. Then, between 2011 and 2012, Frédéric DURAND was involved in the MetroNet Project whose the objective was to analyze the structure of cross-border policy networks in the field of public transport and regional marketing in Basel, Lille, Luxembourg, and Vienna-Bratislava, using social network analysis.
