UrbanHIT – Urban Heterogeneity and Infrastructure Transitions


Advisory Board meets for the first time

The research consortium organized the first meeting of our Advisory Board, chaired by Prof. Monstadt and co-chaired by Dr. Otsuki. The meeting took place at Utrecht University. With the help of internationally renowned experts in the field of urban infrastructures in the global South, we were able to:

  • reflect on results from the first 1.5 years of our research,
  • refine our approaches for future research,
  • discuss publications and the form of other outputs (governance guidelines and policy briefs), as well as
  • how to effectively disseminate these.

In order to involve our partners from Dar es Salaam and Maputo, who could not join in person, a video conference was integrated.

Prof. Monstadt and Dr. Msangi (via video call) discuss past research and the way forward.
