In 2011the EMSDP Programme obtains the AESOP – Association of European Schools of Planning Prize for Teaching Excellence, ex aequo withthe Settlement Project Module at the School of Environment and Development of the University of Manchester.

In awarding the prize to the EMSDP programme, the jury appreciated “the strong and sustained collaboration of a range of university partners in order to offer an interdisciplinary postgraduate training course in urban, regional and spatial planning. This experience shows how curricula can knit institutions together and offer students an integrated European knowledge by bringing together the expertise and perspectives of European planning academics. This sort of collaboration lies at the roots of the mission and commitment of AESOP itself” (from the Jury’s Report).
