The role of cities and their impact on our lives has never been more important. Future cities research at the University of Strathclyde focuses on improving the quality of the city experience and quality of life in cities globally.
With more than half the world's population now living in cities, our aim is to improve quality of human life across the world and enable current and future cities to be understood in new ways. We do this through research, working with commercial organisations, local, national and international governments.
Our key research themes are:
- sustainable city planning and implementation
- risk and resilience
- urban health and e-health
- business models, finance and economic analysis
- urban data analytics
- evidence-based public policy and public service innovation
Ultimately, we want to make cities across the world better places to live, work, learn and invest.
