Dr. Ebru Gencer, Executive Director at CUDRR+R, has joined the Board of Directors at the newly established ISOCARP Institute Centre of Urban Excellence. The Institute was initiated as a “world class knowledge bank and think tank for planning excellence which empowers individuals, organizations and institutions to achieve better human settlements.”

The mission of the Institute is to “enrich the knowledge base and develop the capacity of individuals, organizations and institutions responsible for, or partaking in, the shaping and development of human settlements.” The primary objectives of the Institute include strengthening cross-border collaboration, upholding professional excellence in planning, advancing sustainable planning, sharing best practices, and increasing awareness of major development trends, all while serving as an “Urban Think Tank” to facilitate the dissemination of knowledge for the benefit of cities around the world.
