Mistra Urban Futures projects

Research projects form the core of Mistra Urban Futures’ activities. The projects focus on a range of urban development issues, all contributing with knowledge to promote sustainable urbanisation where cities are Fair, Green and Accessible. 

The approach of generating knowledge and understanding through co-creation is vital in all our projects as they draw upon both theory and practice in equal measure. Below you will find descriptions of both ongoing and finished projects.
