Urban and Regional Sustainability Studies Group – SUR
Urban and Regional Sustainability Studies Group – SUR – was founded in 2008. The Studies Group was created from professors’ concerns at the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering who, inspired in part by the recent global problems, identified the need to strengthen the interactions between the areas of mobility and transportation, environment and urban planning.
SUR has a highly technical and multidisciplinary character. The Studies Group has the ability to generate technical support to assist the processes of public policy design in the land-use planning. Its research areas are framed in: principles of urban and regional environmental quality; regional competitiveness and logistics; public management and institutionality; urban and regional economy; public space and urban architecture; habitat and sustainable construction; modeling and spatial analysis, and mobility and territorial planning.
SUR group is recognized by the research group system evaluation of the Administrative Department of Science, Technology and Innovation (Colciencias)
