A SCHOLARSHIP FOR DR HAB. MACIEJ SMĘTKOWSKI
Where will you receive and fulfill your scholarship, Professor?
What will the research project be about?
I’m working on the book titled: “Metropolisation: trends, policies and prospects”; I study metropolization processes in various spatial scales from an European perspective.
Why did you choose this topic?
The processes of metropolisation constitute a territorial dimension of the global information economy. Understanding their impact on territorial systems at various spatial scales, starting from a continental, through national and regional scale, and ending with the local one, is crucial for the proper shaping of regional and spatial policies. This should allow to strengthen their positive impact on one hand, and counteract their negative effects on the other.
