EPUM aims to develop an innovative, open and inclusive system of teaching and training in urban form from a multidisciplinary perspective. Learning activities will be embedded in the social and economic milieus of different national and educational cultures, thus fostering the development of skills to address comprehensively and effectively the variety of issues and challenges faced by contemporary cities.
The project partners acknowledge the need to establish a network linking the different approaches, through the development of a learning environment that fosters the exchange of knowledge, providing opportunities for contact between members and encouraging the dissemination of findings both nationally and internationally. This coming together of researchers, educators and learners from different languages, geographical areas and disciplines will provide the basis for a multidisciplinary field and the opportunity to establish common theoretical foundations for the growing number of urban form studies in many parts of the world. It will provide the means to engage all stakeholders currently within introverted disciplinary, institutional and geographical boundaries, in a fruitful discussion.
