Cities and urban areas drive innovation, creativity and growth. In the UK, 80% of us live in them. By 2050 nearly three-quarters of the global population will live them.
Successful cities are critical to the future of humankind.
The RCUK/Innovate UK Urban Living Partnership will harness UK research and innovation strength to help cities realise a vision of healthy, prosperous and sustainable living.
These future cities will support strong regional and national economies. They will be resilient, with the ability to adapt and thrive in response to environmental, economic or social change. They will be responsive to the needs and aspirations of their diverse communities.
The Partnership is led by the seven UK Research Councils and Innovate UK.
