Addressing the challenges facing urban areas

As part of the RCUK Urban Living initiative Dr Peter Lee and Professor Jon Sadler have been successful as co-investigators in securing EPSRC Urban Living Partnership funding (£400k).

Over the next 18 months the Urban Living Birmingham (ULB) Consortium will work with stakeholders to identify a major challenge area for innovation in public service co-production in Birmingham aimed at increasing social cohesion, reducing deprivation and improving health. 

The Urban Living Partnership brings together the Research Councils and Innovate UK to promote integrated research and innovation to address the challenges faced by urban areas in the UK and to help them realise their visions for future urban living.
