|Title: Geo-Spatial Modelling Informing Policy
Sponsor : EC Framework (FP7)
Call: People – Marie Curie Actions: International Outgoing Fellowships for Career Development (FP7-PEOPLE-2013-IOF)
Outgoing Host: National Center for Smart Growth Research, University of Maryland
EU Host: School of Architecture, Planning and Environmental Policy, University College Dublin
Scientific Advisors: Prof. Brendan Williams (UCD) and Prof. Gerrit Knaap (UMD)
Start / End Dates : 01-AUG-14 / 31-JUL-17
In scope of this fellowship Dr. Harutyun Shahumyan has moved from University College Dublin (UCD) in Ireland to University of Maryland (UMD) in US for two years and then has returned and build on his research at UCD for another year, for the purposes of enhancing his training in integrated modelling supporting smart and sustainable growth. The research training is achieved through GeoSInPo project dedicated to emerging techniques centred on the development of Spatial Decision Support Systems (SDSS) and application of state-of-the-art geospatial analytical tools, which are uniquely available within the scientific resource bases of the host institutions. This project is delivered through practical application of integrated modelling approaches in two study regions (1) Baltimore-Washington Region (BWR) in US during outgoing phase (2014-2016) and (2) Greater Dublin Region (GDR) in Ireland during return phase (2016-2017).
This research is supported by a Marie Skłodowska-Curie International Outgoing Fellowship within the 7th European Community Framework Program.
