The ARL’s new virtual interactive knowledge and communication platform aims to raise the Academy’s international profile, provide access to the ARL’s work internationally and serve as an information, knowledge and exchange platform for spatial planning professionals.

Many challenges with spatial impacts, such as climate change, energy transition, or demographic change, require global and cooperative approaches. The new platform will make it possible to enter into dialogue with academics in the spatial sciences and spatial planning professionals within the international community. The launch is scheduled for September 2021.

The ARL – Academy for Territorial Development in the Leibniz Association, is an independent institution under public law situated in Hanover.

As a competence centre for sustainable territorial development, the research focus of the ARL is on national and international developments of spatial structures, their causes and effects, and policy and planning options for their management.

The unique feature of the Academy is its integrative perspective, which is based on inter- and transdisciplinary cooperation in numerous working groups. This network involves active collaboration between elected academy members and further experts as well as young people from both academia and practice in the fields of spatial science research, spatial development and spatial planning. Scientific and practice knowledge is thus pooled and new, especially application-oriented, knowledge is generated and passed on. The results of the Academy’s work are directly applied by the participants in their professional activities as well as in vocational education and training. In addition, the ARL Headquarters – as a source of initiatives and a centre for management and coordination – makes this socially relevant knowledge available to research, politics, public administration, planning practice and the interested public through a range of targeted publications, advice, knowledge transfers and events.
