COST (European Cooperation in Science and Technology) is a funding organisation for research and innovation networks. Our Actions help connect research initiatives across Europe and beyond and enable researchers and innovators to grow their ideas in any science and technology field by sharing them with their peers. COST Actions are bottom-up networks with a duration of four years that boost research, innovation and careers.
MCMH has been generally underestimated in
urban and architectural studies and there is still a lack of comparative analysis and global
perspectives. By crossing different approaches
focus on Architecture, Urbanism, Planning,
Public Policies, History, Sociology, our network
allows a wider understanding of MCMH sprawl,
deepening on-going researches and focussing
on the existing case studies.
