International Public Policy Institute Institute for Future Cities

With more than half the world’s population already living in cities, the Institute for Future Cities’ research seeks to improve the quality of life in urban areas by working directly with commercial organisations and research bodies and city, national and supranational governments.

IFC aims to be a centre for research and teaching on smart, sustainable cities that integrate and catalyses expertise and research across sectors and multiple disciplines whilst addressing major global city challenges, seize opportunities and inform decisions that make future cities across the world a better place in which to live, work, learn and invest.

IFC brings together expertise from across the University of Strathclyde - from sensors, communications, energy, engineering, computing, mathematics, sociology, health, public policy, architecture, design, law, business and economics - and externally, with a range of international and commercial partners.
