Organisation profile

El Grup de Geografia Aplicada (GA) és un grup multidisciplinari que es centra en una interpretació més inclusiva de temes socials i territorials per assolir els límits més alts de la recerca i la ciència. Les línies de recerca de GA analitzen, (1) la dinàmica ambiental en paisatges naturals influïts per factors naturals i humans; (2) la dinàmica urbana en zones d'alta i mitja densitat; i (3) la dinàmica dels sistemes estructurals relacionada amb la població i la sostenibilitat. Els temes abordats són: qualitat de vida, biodiversitat i sostenibilitat / risc.

  • Energy, space, and society: analysis of the relationship between energy transition, urban inequality, and public policies
  • Environmental dynamics in natural landscapes: analysis of human influence on biodiversity and climate change.
  • Environmental quality: analysis of processes to better understand soil degradation, the importance of green infrastructure.
