Programme Lead: Dr Harvey Neo (LKYCIC, SUTD)

This programme studies how cities can be revitalised and transitioned to improve liveability, promote innovation and reduce environmental impacts while maximising socio-economic benefits. As urban systems are innately complex and interdependent, the research approach is transdisciplinary and experiments with various technological, design, policy and behavioural interventions. Beyond empirical research, the programme also seeks to understand the theoretical convergences and divergences between cognate concepts such as resilient, healthy, sustainable and ecological cities.
