About the University

a) The Urban Management Centre was formed in 1991 to bring together complementary international and Dutch expertise available in The Netherlands on urban management. The Centre is jointly administered by the Erasmus University Rotterdam (EUR) and the Institute for Housing and Urban Development Studies (IHS), each of which brings its own special strengths to the Centre's activities, within a shared commitment to connect urban theory to urban practice, and a strong interest in applied research.

b) The Erasmus University Rotterdam (EUR) is one of the largest universities in the Netherlands. This government-sponsored university, named after the humanist Desiderius Erasmus Roterodamus (1469-1536), was created in 1973 by the merger of the former Netherlands School of Economics (NEH) and the Medical Faculty Rotterdam. The number of students attending EUR has increased from 7,500 in 1973 to approximately 20,000 in 2015. The university has the following Faculties: Economics, Law, the Humanities and Social Science, Medicine and Health Sciences, Philosophy, Societal History and Study of the Arts, Business Administration/Rotterdam School of Management.

EURICUR is the European Institute for Comparative Urban Research. Our institute was founded by the Mayors of Barcelona and Rotterdam and Erasmus University Rotterdam in 1989 and has its seat with the Erasmus University, being closely related to the Department of Regional, Port and Transport Economics, which also applies most of the staff members. The head of the Department, Professor Leo van den Berg, is also Director of the institute.
