Professor Maroš Krivý
Professor Maroš Krivý (Urban Studies, Faculty of Architecture) has started a three-year research project, funded through a Marie Curie-Skłodowska fellowship (project acronym URBENV), on the history of contemporary urbanism. The project is a collaboration with the Canadian Centre for Architecture in Montreal, a world-leading institution operating at the intersections of exhibition, research, collections and publishing.
Krivý will develop a monograph, Environments of Urbanism: Landscapes, Systems and Power (working title), to examine the interplay between urban and environmental discourses in city planning, landscape architecture, urban geography and other disciplines. The project combines historical and critical perspectives to focus on tensions between techno-scientific and social justice perspectives in these academic and professional fields.
In Horizon 2020, the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions fund excellent research and innovation and equip researchers at all stages of their career with new knowledge and skills, through mobility across borders and exposure to different sectors and disciplines. The MSCA helps build Europe’s capacity for research and innovation by investing in the long-term careers of excellent researchers. A total of eight MSCA Global Fellowship grants have been awarded to Estonia, seven of them to the researchers at the University of Tartu and one to EKA.
