Dr. Marcin Dąbrowski teaches and researches spatial planning and (multi-level) governance issues related to sustainable urban and regional futures. He is an assistant professor at the Department of Urbanism, being part of Delft University of Technology and its Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment. With a background in political science and experience in research on spatial planning systems, diverse territorial policies and participatory practices, Marcin operates as a boundary spanner creating bridges across disciplines, academic ‘tribes’ and societal groups. Marcin has published extensively on Europeanisation of regional policy, European Union’s Cohesion policy and its impacts on regional governance and the citizens’ perceptions of European integration (Horizon 2020 COHESIFY). His more recent work explores questions of integration of flood risk management with spatial planning, policy transfer, stakeholder engagement in water-linked heritage valorisation policies (Interreg WaVE), co-design of territorial circular economy strategies (Horizon 2020 REPAiR) and participatory carbon-neutrality experimentation in cities (Horizon Europe UP2030), cross-fertilisation between EU Cohesion Policy and spatial planning (ESPON COMPASS), and engagement of marginalised communities in just sustainability transitions in regions that are heavily dependent on energy-intensive industries (Horizon Europe DUST).
