Bio

Bas van Heur is professor of human geography and director of the Cosmopolis Centre for Urban Research within the Department of Geography. He is also director of the Brussels Centre for Urban Studies, a university-wide centre for urban research that brings together research groups from various disciplines. His main research interest is in the politics of urban development and the analysis of urban development strategies and their effects. Theoretically, this has led to contributions on cultural (political) economy and regulation theory, urban laboratories and experimentation, innovation and the knowledge economy. Empirically, most of his work to date is situated within one of two areas: (i) research on the cultural and creative industries and urban cultural policy; and (ii) research on university-city relations and the role of higher education in urban and regional development.
