The major cities are rapidly expanding and, with them, the areas outside the city centres. These are the areas in which most people live, and where most businesses are located. There are many opportunities, but also huge challenges. Reinvent is a knowledge hub for issues related to research about suburban landscapes. Our ambition is to be a national and international platform that highlights the mechanisms and innovative solutions that bridge and transcend economic, social and ecological tensions and divides in urban development.
Reinvent is one of Södertörn University’s biggest research projects and the intention is to develop research about suburban environments and sustainable urban development into a major profile area for the university.
