Working from home in the post-pandemic era: Curse or blessing?
This project combines urban and environmental economics in order to study how WFH changes the internal structure of a city and what are the impacts on the environment. Specific objectives of the project are to:
(i) Investigate how WFH will affect the land and labour market in cities with different structures (e.g. monocentric vs. cities with more than one business centres);
(ii) Define the conditions under which WFH is good or bad for the environment, by taking into account the energy use of the housing, office and commuting sectors in different cities.
