The Mistra Urban Futures organisation is made up of five local interaction platforms, spread in five cities around the world: Cape Town, Gothenburg, Sheffield-Manchester, Kisumu, and - since 2016 - also Malmö as a centre for the Skåne region. Mutual learning and development of the research centre's activites goes hand in hand with the outspoken focus on the research.
Mistra Urban Futures is governed by an international Board of directors and a consortium of Gothenburg-based public institutions, two universities and a research institute. The centre is hosted by Chalmers University of Technology, which is also one of the consortium partners.
Administration is being handled both locally at each platform and centrally from the Secretariat in Gothenburg.
