The Institute of Advanced Studies would like to invite you to attend a Cities and Urban Change Summit. We recognise that urban issues and challenges are becoming a priority for RCUK and other funding agencies, and wish to consider the University’s response to this fast moving research area.

Key themes for discussion include:

  • Urban economies
  • Certainty, risk, sustainability and uncertainty
  • Density and urban living
  • Movement, connections and interconnections
  • Diversity and inequalities
  • Governance and politics

Please note that these discussions are anticipated to include comparison across the Global North and South, as well as the cross-cutting theme of Technology and Big Data.
