Jörg Schröder

Leibnitz University, Hannover, DE

Jörg Schröder is an architect and urban planner. He is Professor and the Chair for Regional Building and Urban Planning at the Leibniz University Hannover and drives research on urban-rural polarities and strategies for innovative habitat models beyond metropolitan cores. His main focus lies on the issue of rural-urban dichotomy, sustainable habitat development and regional architecture. In several international research projects Jörg has uncovered striking potentials of a new reading of remote areas.

As an experienced researcher, Jörg has driven discussion on urban-rural relationships in various publications, conferences and academic co-operations. Innovative approaches to governance options are another important aspect of his work. They serve as a foundation for territorial innovation and resilience across different scales, and can help integrate bottom-up and participatory practices. Jörg has been involved in influential European research projects such as RURBANCE, AlpBC or Regiobranding and recently published “Dynamics of periphery”.

He will be part of the panel COMPACT + PRODUCTIVE at the Urban Land Conference.
