With its different international research projects as well as the SPRING study program, IPS has established partnerships across the globe – within academia and beyond. IPS research fellows are active in international networks such as Association of African Planning Schools (AAPS) and TRIALOG e.V., working together with colleagues from all continents.
At IPS, we are always interested in widening our network of partners and extending our activities beyond established collaborations. Therefore, we warmly invite you to collaborate with IPS and to work with us on improving current approaches for urban change and planning.
Across the globe, IPS collaborates with universities and university departments – in Europe, Asia, Africa and Latin America.
