Where we work

As part of an international University, we engage with partners in cities across the world, sharing learning and insights as part of international networks, and collaborating with other future city research centres.

Where are we working?

  • In Glasgow, our home city, which has an international reputation for its leading ambition to be a sustainable city, working with the City Council, the Chamber of Commerce, and with local communities
  • In Scottish cities where we engage with the Scottish Government, national NGOs and voluntary organisations
  • In the UK and Europe, collaborating with SMEs, technology companies and city leaders to support sustainable city planning
  • Globally, including a focus on the future of the city centre, improving quality of life in informal settlements, enhancing citizen participation in policy making, and using technology to improve air quality.

Our base

We operate from the heart of Glasgow, the UK’s future city demonstrator, where we are located in the state-of-the-art Technology & Innovation Centre; itself designed to facilitate greater collaboration between academic researchers and other partners.  Our custom-built City Observatory facility allows our partners to help identify approaches to address urban challenges, to visualise solutions, and to use data analytics to understand cities and city systems in new ways.
