Ismir Mulalic receives grant from the Danish Agency for Higher Education and Science
The Danish Agency for Higher Education and Science has granted ECON Associate Professor Ismir Mulalic to establish a close collaboration between Copenhagen Business School (CBS) and Johns Hopkins Carey Business School (prof. Luis Quintero).
Using the project participants’ knowledge, skills and experiences, this collaboration will help motivating new theories and solutions to challenges that are currently facing modern cities. These encompass different urban disamenities such as congestion, noise, pollution, and the higher risks of spread of diseases (e.g. COVID 19). Others involve issues related to the labour market including the increasing commuting times, low real wage growth, and skills gap. But, maybe the largest of all is the raising housing prices (the apparent consequence of agglomeration economies) resulting from the migration to large cities (the urbanization process).
