Friday, December 9th at 13:00 Doctoral Student Melissa Candel will defend her thesis ‘Public Land Development for Sustainability-Profiled Districts – A value co-creation perspective’.

“The dissertation contributes to public land development research by introducing a public-private value co-creation framework to describe and explain collaborative exchange and innovation between municipalities and developers. It also provides in depth knowledge of public land development, and more specifically municipal land allocation processes, in sustainability-profiled district developments, which differ from more typical developments in regards to innovation ambitions. Finally, the dissertation contributes with a micro-level analysis of municipal land allocation processes, at the district- and project-level, in the Swedish context. Building on the analysis and evaluation, recommendations for enhancing private project value and public value creation in sustainability-profiled districts are provided. The dissertation ultimately illustrates how collaboration between public and private actors aimed at achieving divergent and oftentimes conflicting sustainable urban development objectives is shaped by the specific planning processes and systems they are embedded in.”
