We believe that we all have the right to live in cities that cater for the environment, promote health and wellbeing, protect us from natural and human-made disasters and make use of the latest digital technologies to serve humanity.
Therefore, we are working on research towards the development of cities that are: Digital, Liveable, Resilient and Sustainable.
Priority Research Areas
Digital Cities explores new ways of exploiting technology in the cities of tomorrow, but at the same time seeking to understand their possible social impact.
Liveable Cities explores how to prevent disease and enhance urban health as well as ageing well, while at the same time seeking to understand what it means to live well in the city.
Resilient Cities focuses on how to make cities as well as communities and citizens more resilient, agile and adaptable to climate change and other global challenges, such as future pandemics.
Sustainable Cities focuses on how to improve life for those living in cities today and how to reduce the impact they have on the areas around them.
