KEY RESEARCH IMPACT
EBIT’s Department of Town and Regional Planning is a research-driven consulting partner of a wide range of state and non-state entities. These range from The Presidency to provincial governments, research councils and municipalities. The research has contributed to legal and policy preparation and review processes.
The Department views the need for and use of research as fourfold, viz. to:
- Serve the wider academic/scientific planning community by providing new, and testing existing, knowledge and theories in planning and associated disciplines;
- Provide planning practitioners with appropriate and useful knowledge by conducting reflective research on the practice, products and outcomes of planning actions/activities;
- Ensure the sustained relevance and credibility of lecturing staff in the field, by honing their mental skills and keeping them alert to the latest developments in the field; and
- Build bridges between members of staff, as well as between the members of staff and researchers in other institutions around shared areas of concerns/interest.
