RECOURSE (Research and Education Centre for Urban Socio-Economic Development) seminaries are the own project of the Department, being continuation of the Centre of Excellence. Seminaries take place on occasional Wednesdays between 1 and 3 PM in the room B-214 at the Institute of Geography and are open for everybody.
