Project —

The project in which I will work is a project linked to the study of mobility. It involves building a methodological design of the mobility analysis of a territory with urban dispersion. The work includes a part of bibliographic research on similar cases, the definition of the territorial and social scope (segment and collapse), the construction of a sample with territorial representation and the definition of possible collaborating agents. In addition, the objective is to establish an action plan (chronology, contacts and collaborations) and a survey design. We will use the model in Osona but the objective is to build a model of analysis applicable in other territories.
