Future Cities

Manchester has a strong track record of Urban research which draws on the city of Manchester’s unique place at the epicentre of industrial capitalism, as well as its subsequent strategies to set out its post-industrial futures and respond to 21 century devolution -  which will potentially bring far reaching consequences for those living in Manchester and beyond.

Many of these projects focus on Smart Cities - integrating multiple information and communication technology (ICT) solutions in a secure fashion to manage a city's systems including transportation systems, health, environment, power and much more to improve the lives of citizens.
