Urban Lab +

The UCL Urban Laboratory is a partner of the URBAN LAB + international network of urban laboratories.  The network is led by TU the Technische Universität Berlin, and includes eight established Urban Laboratories worldwide. Funding has been awarded for the network to run from 2013 to 2015 under the Erasmus Mundus Programme. 

The network aims to address critical questions facing built environment education, providing a platform for dialogue and cooperation between various Urban Laboratories involved in higher education as well as local urban development processes – from Europe as well as from major regions of urban growth in South Africa, Asia, and Latin America.

The participating Urban Laboratories will expand and develop their work through international partnerships. Activities will focus on enhancing urban teaching and research, and will include joint symposia, workshops, faculty exchange and hands-on projects. These are structured around three clusters; interdisciplinarity, global education, and exchanges between academic researchers and built environment professionals.  

The eight partners are:

Technische Universität Berlin, Germany

UCL Urban Laboratory, UK

École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, Switzerland

Università della Calabria, Italy

Pontificia Universidad Catolica de Chile

Kamla Raheja Vidyanidhi Institute for Architecture and Environmental Studies, India

University of the Witwatersrand, South Africa

The Chinese University of Hong Kong

For further information please contact Dr Ben Campkin (b.campkin@ucl.ac.uk) or Dr Andrew Harris (andrew.harris@ucl.ac.uk) who are leading UCL’s involvement in the network.
