PLANET Europe: European spatial planning, environmental policies and regional development

Nijmegen School of Management

  • Description
  • Overview

The influence of EU policies and actions on spatial and environmental planning in the EU member states is ever increasing. European regions are more and more interlinked, and cooperation across national borders is now a routine aspect of the work of spatial and environmental planners. There are considerable differences in how planning is conducted across Europe, and planners are increasingly required to communicate across cultural and institutional boundaries.

This European dimension of planning requires a new generation of spatial and environmental planners, who are aware of and can respond to as well as influence EU and international policy, are sensitive to cultural and institutional differences across Europe, and are capable to cooperate with spatial planners in other European countries.

PLANET Europe, a two-year (120 ECs) integrated European Masters programme on European spatial planning, environmental policies and regional development, prepares you for a career in environmental and spatial planning in Europe.

PLANET Europe is a joint Masters programme by Radboud University Nijmegen, Blekinge Institute of Technology and Cardiff University. Students can choose a specialisation on either European spatial planning and sustainable development (Nijmegen-Cardiff track) or on European spatial planning and regional economic development (Nijmegen-Karlskrona track). You will graduate with an internationally-recognised double degree (MSc). Qualified applications can apply for Erasmus Mundus scholarships.
