The formal charter of establishment of AESOP was signed in Dortmund, Germany in 1987. In 1992, it was formally registered as a non-profit association under Belgian law.
The association aims to promote the development of the teaching curricula and research among its member institutions through mutual dialogue, communication, exchange, and dissemination of research practices.
The network of education and research institutions holds regular Annual Congress to bring together staff and students across the planning realm and associated disciplines to make presentations and discuss research works on European, national, regional and local spatial planning issues, as well as debates on planning curricula. A regular three-day Ph.D workshop (initiated since 1993) precedes the Annual Congress. The Association also issues periodic Newsletter to provide information on the activities of member institutions, and reports of the various Working Groups.
