As a geographer, Antoni Durà' initial scientific career focused on Urban Geography (metropolitan dynamics, social geography and qualitative methods, residential mobility in the Barcelona area), and urban studies are currently one of his research lines. During the 2000’s he oriented his research towards the analysis of urban networks and geo-economics axes (specially the Mediterranean Arc), and focused on European Territorial Cooperation studies (mainly Cross-Border Cooperation). He collaborates with academics from a number of countries mainly in Europe and America, and from different scientific disciplines (Geography, Political Sciences, International Relations, Law, Sociology…). These synergies drove him to collaborate in the academic network RECOT. This network was key for the joint development of national (COOP-RECOT: 2010-12 and COOP-RECOT II: 2014-17) and international projects (BORDERGOV: 2012-17, Europe, Canada, United States and Mexico). These collaborations have produced a number of scientific publications (papers and book chapters in relevant editorials, see bibliography), the organization and/or participation in workshops on Euroregions and ETC (Barcelona 2005, 2008, 2019, Valencia 2005 and 2008, Jena 2008, Arras 2017), and particularly of the RECOT network (from Allariz 2007 and Donostia 2010 to Cambados 2017), international congresses (Assoc. American Geographers, Regional Studies Assoc., European Assoc. of Border Studies, BRIT…), and the organization in Barcelona of the II Economic Conference of North-western Mediterranean, 2011. This activity has been carried out in part within the SGR INTERFASE research team (Dept. of Geography,UAB), recognized by the Catalan autonomous Government as a consolidated research group on environmental management and regional planning in Europe.

Other activities: management of scientific journals, several PhD Theses' supervision, knowledge transfer to local and regional autonomous administration, and academic responsibilities (Director of the Dept. of Geography, UAB, 2011-2017).

Accès au livre Maillages, interfaces, réseaux transfrontaliers, de nouveaux enjeux territoriaux de la santé
À travers ce chapitre, nous essayons d’approfondir les défis de la coopération transfrontalière (CTF) en matière de santé dans l’UE, à travers l’analyse d’un cas emblématique, l’hôpital frontalier de Cerdagne, localisé dans les Pyrénées catalanes, sur la frontière franco-espagnole. Il est d’usage d’entendre que la coopération transfrontalière est un laboratoire où il est possible de tester le processus d’intégration européenne. En effet, les contrastes entre les systèmes politiques et administratifs qui régissent les États membres se manifestent sous une forme plus accentuée dans les espaces frontaliers.
