The Institute for Future Cities

The Institute for Future Cities is a multidisciplinary research unit based within the international, award winning University of Strathclyde. We work with commercial, civic and academic partners across the world to understand better the challenges faced by cities as places to live and work, and to help unlock the potential of these cities to provide innovative ways of enhancing the quality of life of their citizens.

Our strength lies in our ability to respond quickly and agilely to the changing needs of cities and to help promote socially progressive and inclusive urban development.

Led by Richard Bellingham and Robert Rogerson, the Institute extends beyond its core team drawing together expertise across Strathclyde University (and other Universities across the world) from a wide range of disciplines and backgrounds in order to apply key expertise, diverse perspectives, and a powerful network of external partnerships to tackle complex city issues.
