CUSP London is a joint initiative from King’s College London and the University of Warwick. It brings together researchers, businesses, local authorities and government agencies, to apply urban science to improving public health and wellbeing. The creation of CUSP London follows the highly successful establishment of the Centre for Urban Science and Progress (CUSP) in New York. As such, it is intended that the two units will work closely together.
Through CUSP London, King’s offers targeted skills in understanding and improving urban spaces and social structures. Developments are made possible by applying computational methods, data analysis and qualitative techniques to city data sources. Alongside this, the Centre for Urban Science and Progress is led by specialised expertise, focused on the particular issues that affect urban citizens, such as pollution and mental health. Utilising this information beyond theoretical spheres, CUSP provides the knowledge and strategies for developing Government policies, to implement change for the better in urban areas. This includes practical improvements to neighbourhoods, such as assistance with crime prevention and support for new transport initiatives.
