Urban Living Hub

Urban Living Hub

The Urban Living Hub acts as an umbrella of activity for all research in the Department of Informatics addressing urban-related issues. Focus of the hub activity include energy, culture, entertainment, day and night-time economies, logistics, town planning, pollution, population, transport and smart cities.

Our strength builds upon strong connections with partners from sectors that complement each other through a diversity of expertise, competences, socio-economic interests, and political influences.

The hub is directly aligned with King’s 2029 strategic vision of a civic university at the heart of London, with a view to develop research collaborations that address London’s challenges.

The hub operates in close cooperation with the Centre for Urban Science and Progress (CUSP) London, a national and international collaborative network of researchers, companies and local governments.

Through CUSP London ambitious program the hub is favoured by opportunities to access unique data sets and challenges.
