All over the world, problems of land use, damages caused by natural disasters and conflicts between land users increase.
The Institute of Regional Science (IfR) at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), Germany, analyzes these structures and processes. With a focus on developing countries, the institute's interdisciplinary research staff develops regional and spatial planning concepts to meet these challenges. The institute's guiding principle is an active exchange of research and teaching at the interface of geo, environmental and social sciences.
In the framework of the Master’s degree course in Regional Science/Spatial Planning, the IfR offers two different four-term study programmes focusing on the special challenges of spatial and regional planning in emerging and developing countries. The IfR also fulfills teaching and research responsibilities of the former Institute of Urban and Spatial Planning (ISL) at KIT.
