Smart Sustainable Cities
The Manchester Urban Institute is home to a number of interdisciplinary research agendas and themes. In Smart and Sustainable Cities researchers engage in the smart urbanism agenda providing expertise, analysing and assessing data, and participating as partners in smart city trials.
Examples of our Smart and Sustainable Cities projects include:
Climate Proof Cities
The aim of Climate Proof Cities is to build a multi-scale (from the level of buildings via neighbourhoods to city agglomerations) quantitative knowledge base on urban climate, the vulnerability of cities to climate change, and expected impacts of possible future changes in climate.

The University of Manchester collaborated with a wide range of contributors to develop The Joseph Rowntree Foundation's ClimateJust. Climate Just is an information tool designed to help with the delivery of equitable responses to climate change at the local level.
