The post-socialist transition induced substantial changes in society, public policy, urban economies and structures, and significantly transformed existing urban development processes in Serbia. Within the framework of an SNSF-SCOPES Institutional partnership, the SPUDS project unites the Cooperation and Development Center (CODEV) and the Institute of Architecture and Urban Planning (IAUS) in order to support the gradual building of a new heuristic approach to urban issues in the post-socialist transitional context in Serbia.

IAUS is the leading research institution in the field in Serbia, also with great results achieved in professional work - in architectural and urban design, in spatial and urban planning.
