Sustainable Cities GRP Small Grants Scheme 2022/2023 - CLOSED

Sustainable Cities Global Research Priority is dedicated to supporting Warwick's research community, providing support and resources to those working in and with urban research. There are a number of themes that underlie our work:

Scheme is closed

Economic Sustainability

This theme explores how financial solutions can make our cities more sustainable. We use micro- and macro-economic data. We also look at how city economies work.

Environmental Sustainability

This theme explores how to improve the situation of the urban poor. We look at how to do this without harming the environment and nearby ecology.

Social and Cultural Sustainability

This theme explores the human side of the city. How we can make public spaces more habitable and sustainable?

Risk & Resilience

This theme explores how we plan for, detect and respond to: Natural Hazards, Disease outbreaks, Cyber attacks, Infrastructure disruption, Terrorist threat and Social unrest. 

Urban Data and Knowledge

What can data collected through sensors and mobile devices tell us about our urban environment?
