Emerging Perspectives on Urban Morphology: Researching and Learning through multiple practices

EPUM is an international research project which aims at the integration of different urban form research and teaching approaches through pedagogic innovation and Information and Communication Technology (ICT). The activities of this 28 months project (2017-2020) are funded by Erasmus+ and focus on the development of an innovative, open and inclusive system of teaching and training in urban form from a multidisciplinary perspective, capable of enabling the current and future generation of planning and design professionals to address comprehensively and effectively the variety of issues and challenges faced by contemporary cities. This website provides information about the project activities to partners and to other parties interested in the work of the project.

Learning Activities

Small scale teaching material and local project activities will also be developed and carried out by the partner organisations involved in implementation. These will include among others:

  • Participation in international conferences dedicated to urban form studies, with the participation of representatives from different institutions and disciplines.
  • Seminars with a focus on the different schools of thought and methodologies bringing together researchers/teachers.
  • Seminars with a focus on the project tools, the use of the project’s digital platform within existing local curricula.
  • Joint learning activities carried out by academic institutions collaboratively, following a blended-learning approach.
