ESA EXPRO grant on urban fabric of Europe

We are pleased to announce that a research consortium led by Dr Martin Fleischmann has been awarded a grant to study the structure of cities in Europe in space and time. The project, funded by the European Space Agency, will be carried out in collaboration with academic partners from The Alan Turing Institute, led by prof. Dani Arribas-Bel, and the OECD Geospatial Lab, led by Dr Claudia Baranzelli, and with partners from policy (The Prague Institute of Planning and Development) and practice (4ct). During the 12 months of the project, the team will develop the the methodological basis for the development of a continental scale urban fabric classification that can be unfolded in time using artificial intelligence applied to Sentinel 2 satellite imagery. The total value of the funding is €250,000.
