2018 Premier Sponsor
Newcastle University undertakes a wide variety of world leading research in cities and smart infrastructure. Our work spans Environment, Economy, Infrastructure, Health, Heritage, Governance and Justice. The breadth and depth of our work means we work across the growing and complex social, economic and environmental challenges facing cities.
As part of UKCRIC – the UK Collaboratorium for Research on Infrastructure and Cities – we host the National Green Infrastructure Facility, and the Urban Observatory which is one of the biggest open, real-time urban datasets in the world. Our Newcastle City Futures programme is a collaborative platform for urban project innovation, linking academic research expertise to urban living needs. It has now levered in £10m into Newcastle and Gateshead, across 50 projects with 170 partners.
We have several research groups working in the cities domain including Spatial Analytics & Modelling, Global Urban Research Unit, and the Centre for Urban and Regional Development Studies. We are a World Top 100 University for computer science and in 2020 we will open the £30m National Innovation Centre for Data.
We’re keen to grow our partnership base and international networks to develop, share and shape our research with industry, government, and communities.
