Professor Elena Simperl


CUSP London and Westminister City Council

The Centre for Urban Science and Progress (CUSP) London ‘Urban Lab’ partnership with Westminster City Council (WCC) and UCL’s Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis (CASA) won the Royal Geographical Society Award for Excellence in Local Government. The partnership focused on launching a series of initiatives, which identified opportunities for London students to be involved in urban dataset projects which are of mutual benefit to WCC whilst creating real impact outcomes and opportunities across the city.

Through a combination of student work placements, consultancy work, secondment opportunities and more than 20 MSc and PhD research projects, the Urban Lab partnership has generated indispensable insights and invited new perspectives to shape evidence-based policymaking.

"This is an amazing recognition for CUSP London, beside the prestige carried by being within the few entries shortlisted for the award, it is a testimony to the hard work of the CUSP London team."
