Prof. dr. Cathy Macharis was awarded the 2017 Georges Allaert Personality Prize. This prize is awarded every year by the MoRO foundation (Stichting Mobiliteit en Ruimtelijke Ordening). An independent jury, with Filip Watteeuw (Stad Gent) as this year’s Chairman, chooses the laureates for their contributions to the interaction between mobility and spatial planning. Manu Claeys (stRaten-generaal) is the other laureate for 2017. The prize was handed out by Jan Peumans (Vlaams Parlement) at the Colloquium for Disruptive Mobilities, organised by the Center for Mobility and Spatial Planning (AMRP – UGent).
