Urban Transformations aims to shape new thinking about how people and cities interact against a backdrop of evolving challenges including demographic and environmental change, financial vulnerability and growing inequalities.
The ESRC wish to support proposals for innovative and ambitious research that will advance understanding of, and offer solutions to, two challenges impacting cities and urban areas in the UK and internationally.
Proposals featuring co-design and co-production with non-academic stakeholders are encouraged as part of this call.
Research proposals should cover one or both of the following topics:
- Social innovation and creative urban living
- Urban economies
Proposals for this call should also adopt one or both of the cross-cutting areas:
- Inequalities, diversities and difference
- Politics, governance and democracy
