The book is a comprehensive record of a research funded by the European Union (European Commission, DG EAC, TNP). The research, developed within the AESOP framework by three working groups each one dealing with a facet of planning education, describes the changes taking place in planning research, in doctoral studies and in the profession, highlighting the interfaces between changes in the planning worlds and a wider context.

The project was co-ordinated by Alex Fubini and each working group had several contributors and a leader: Alessandro Balducci for Planning Research, Barrie Needham for Doctoral Studies, and Taner Oc for Education and Profession.

Work was carried out between 1997 and 2001. A Concluding Seminar was held in Turin in May 2002.

The introductory chapter, containing the general findings of the work as well as the Chart, drafted and discussed at the end of the research, is followed by two parts. Part one contains main results of the Turin seminar after a 4-year long and fruitful debate on the future of spatial planning education in Europe. Part two includes the whole collection of all the materials produced by a large number of contributors, representing all the European schools that participated to the project.

TNP Improving Planning Education in Europe is a Thematic Network Project established by AESOP in 1997, with the help of the EC, Directorate General for Education and Culture.

Alex Fubini teaches Territorial Planning at the Turin Polytechnic and is in charge of the PhD Course in Territorial Planning and Local Development. He has co-ordinated a number of EU research projects. He has been a member of AESOP since it was established.
