Welcome to the Institute for Future Cities

main content

The role of cities and their impact on our lives has never been more important. With more than half the world's population now living in cities, our research seeks to improve quality of human life in urban areas 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 and national government.
