CEDRU – Centre for Studies and Urban and Regional Development, Ltd. is a technical consulting company in the areas of Land Use Management, Economy, Society, and Culture.

Strategic Planning, Land Use Management, Urbanism, Training and Institutional Development, European Studiesand Evaluation of Public Policies are the privileged intervention areas for over a quarter of a century of activity. In parallel, applied research, teaching and training, as well as the promotion or participation in meetings of scientific, technical and cultural character are current activities of CEDRU’s intervention philosophy.

The core team, with diverse skills and professional and academic training, is supported by an extensive network of both national and international consultants.



Counting on a quarter of a century history, CEDRU has been pursuing a constant update among its various intervention areas, its technical, scientific and cultural skills, and also its infrastructure (facilities and equipment).

From this accumulated and treated knowledge, from the experiences and experiments, at CEDRU we continue to pay attention to The History of the Future, which is one of our leading positions in the approaches to the territory. That History is constantly being written and updated.



The values of CEDRU result, on the one hand, from a continuous learning path and, on the other hand, from a daily deepening and understanding of the sustainable development concept. What we produce to our clients is also our feed.

Therefore, not excluding the inherent but necessary risk, responsibility and a sense of contemporaneity are the keys for the success of our work.

We learn from the wise men the importance of acquiring and maintaining the steady basis of knowledge, through the impulse of creativity and a tender and persistent affection to work.



What gives us strength and rewards us is the belief that our actions are determined and headed to the territory enhancement and human settlement, including the social and cultural mission from both the company and its collaborators.

Our mission has been and will constantly be measured and shaped in order to respond to our clients requests considering the best framework of the market’s perspectives.
