The Centre for Regional Geography (CGR) is a research unit within the Babeş-Bolyai University of Cluj-Napoca, focused on complex research, namely fundamental research, applied research and delivery of services to the community, in the field of regional geography, and territorial arrangement and planning.

CGR was founded in 2003 and accredited by the National University Research Council (CNCSIS) in 2004. It was born from the need of institutionalizing a new research direction initiated by Professor Pompei Cocean at the Faculty of Geography, in 1997, when the Inter-County Spatial Plan – The Inter-County Contact Area of Cluj, Bihor, Bistriţa-Năsăud, Maramureş, Mureş, Satu Mare, Sălaj was won, an exceptional project in terms of theoretical, methodological and practical load. This was followed, in a logical connection, by other important projects and research grants that led to a real specialization in the field of spatial planning and in the elaboration of development strategies for all known regional taxa – region, county (zone), microregion, city or commune.

As a result, the programme of the centre aims at state-of-the-art regional approaches to assessing the natural and human potential of various geographical units and subunits, spatial planning, economic and social development strategies at regional, zonal, microregional, or local level, areas, poles and axes of spatial gravity, economic, social or infrastructural disparities, territorial cohesion, etc. A recent concern for a group of researchers at CGR is the issue of geographical mental spaces, where their contributions have already become significant.
