In Sweden and world wide
Sustainable urban development is a very broad and topical research area at Linköping University. Research here is multidisciplinary and has many different points of departure - technical, economic and sociological.
The role of industry in cities is studied, alongside the influence of selected technical systems on human actions. Other important areas of research include mining cities, traffic planning, transport and city logistics, and the role of municipalities in the creation of a sustainable city. Research ranges from studies of cycling, traffic and sustainability in Norrköping and Linköping to the management of resources and sustainable development in the world's mega-cities.
