Research Institute of Urbanisation

Research areas

The Research Institute of Urbanisation was established in 2013 to strengthen the research area of sustainable urbanisation, one of the inter-disciplinary research priorities of XJTLU’s academic strategy. The current urbanisation process in China demands interdisciplinary collaborative research between university researchers, policymakers, and practitioners.

Urbanisation research must have local government and community engagement, involving the business and industrial sectors and, at the same time, make connection with the most advanced research centres and international organisations worldwide.
