The Department of Urban and Environmental Sociology at Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research – UFZ (Germany) is likely one of the most appealing and advanced research centres I’ve seen in relation to urban and environmental studies. See bellow the short description provided in their website:

The Department of Urban and Environmental Sociology at Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research – UFZ builds on a rich tradition of scholarship in human ecological research in sociology and related disciplines. Here, you may explore our web of people and projects, and how they are advancing sociological inquiry in inter- and transdisciplinary contexts.

What I most like is the track record of research projects. I have affinity for many of the topics covered by them such as land use conflicts, urban development or social cohesion. One of the head of the department Dr. Sigrun Kabisch has conducted mining regions related research projects in the past as well as I do in my doctoral dissertation. Actually, I have got coincidence with she and other members in several international conferences.

I promise to track them and occasionally mention some of its projects in the category #TopResearchProjects
