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. Please do not hesitate to use the filter-icon (button) below to find projects, publications and people.
