Organisation

The Mistra Urban Futures organisation is made up of several local interaction platforms, spread in these cities around the world: Cape Town, Gothenburg, Stockholm, Sheffield-Manchester, Kisumu, and - since 2016 - also Malmö as a centre for the Skåne region. Shimla and Buenos Aires are also project partners. 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 and the University of Gothenburg, which is also two of the consortium partners. Since early 2019, Mistra Urban Futures has been integrated as a unit of the  Gothenburg Centre for Sustainable Development, GMV. 

Administration is being handled both locally at each platform and centrally from the Secretariat in Gothenburg. If you are looking for people who work at our secretariat or any of our platforms, go to our Find people-page.
