About Us

The Institute for Future Cities brings together governments, businesses, academics and citizens to imagine and engage with the future of our cities, and explore how to make cities more successful, healthier, safer and more sustainable for us all.

Our location

Our team, and the City Observatory workspace, are based at the University of Strathclyde’s £89 million state-of-the-art Technology & Innovation Centre. Our custom-built City Observatory facility allows our partners to dynamically visualise cities and city systems in new ways.
