Klaus R. Kunzmann holds a Jean Monnet professorship for European Spatial Planning at the School of Planning at the Universitat Dortmund, Germany, and is an Honorary professor of the University of Cardiff.

Klaus R. Kunzmann has been responsible for numerous research projects on innovative urban and regional development, on regional restructuring and on planning education. He has published widely in German, England and Italian. As a keynote speaker he is frequently invited to international conferences in Europe and beyond. As a visiting professor he has taught, among others, at the Université de Paris 8 (1992), the University of California, Los Angeles (1994), the University of Cardiff (1999, 2004), the School of Architecture and Planning at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (1999), and at the Graduate School of Fine Arts of the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia (2000).

On behalf of the European Commission and the Senate of the Land Berlin he was a member of the expert panels for the partially EU-funded London Future Study and the Study for the Future of Berlin. In fall 1998 he was invited by the prefecture of Okinawa/Japan to present a concept for the future use of the US Navy Air base on the Island, and in 2000 by the provincial Government of Hainan/China to advise on regional development matters.

Klaus R. Kunzmann was the founder president of the Association of European Schools of Planning. As policy advisor and consultant he has extensively worked for the European Commission in urban and spatial policy programs, for the Council of Europe and OECD, and for the German Development Cooperation (GTZ), advising Governments among others in Yemen, Nepal, Jordan, Brazil and Malawi. For two election periods (1977 and 1997) he was Dean of the Dortmund School of Planning. He was member of the Scientific Advisory Councils of the French Délégation d}Aménagement de Territoire (DATAR).

His present research interests are on innovative urban policy and European spatial planning, on regional restructuring, on urban policy in China, and on the role of creativity and the arts for spatial and endogenous economic development.

Since 1968, when he first wrote about planning education, he has promoted spatial planning education as an independent discipline, distinct from traditional disciplines, such as architecture or geography. During the 90s of the past century, Klaus R. Kunzmann was chairman of the Federal German Commission for Planning Education.
