About the topic
Local organizations and entrepreneurs play a crucial role in urban neighborhoods, connecting and empowering residents by providing resources and access to various aspects of urban life. Integrating the built environment into our understanding of organizations/entrepreneurs in the geo-social landscape is an underexplored area, despite its potential to directly influence social connectivity.
Through an integrated interdisciplinary approach, the NIAS-Lorenz theme group aims to gain a deeper understanding of the mechanisms underlying the relationship between the built environment, social processes, and neighborhood organizations/entrepreneurs. Amsterdam provides the ideal setting for this research, considering its demographic context and data availability.
