The professorship in land use and transport planning at Aalto University focuses on the integration of land-use and transport systems in urban and regional planning. This includes various academic approaches to integrate the two previously separate disciplines. While addressing topical sustainability challenges, these integrative approaches can concern, for example, smart urban and mobility models and interfaces, urban and regional accessibility and mobility, everyday living and mobility in the built environment, or strategic spatial planning and transport policy. With its emphasis on the interaction of land use and transport systems, the position contributes importantly to building a transdisciplinary groundwork for the Research Group of Spatial Planning and Transportation Engineering (SPT), in both its education and research.
