URRlab offers placements for international students. The first of our visitors is Vicente from Brazil who is interested in urban geography. He is currently focusing on material and symbolic transformations in Rio de Janeiro of the last decades. Together with others, he seeks for the main stakeholders and processes that re-organise the setting and functioning of urban areas, particularly the central ones. He came to visit Prague for a comparison with European urban environment. Another visiting student is Júlia who we are awaiting in May.
