The Cities partnerships Programme and Global Engagement Funds were established to extend UCL's local and global knowledge
In 2018, the Cities partnerships Programme (CpP) was launched to support, fund and promote the work that UCL academics carry out with partners in global cities, with the aim of developing sustainable, multidisciplinary research and teaching partnerships.
UCL academic directors are in post for the first three cities in the programme: Rome, Paris and Stockholm. Through CpP, UCL has had more than 80 academic-led events in Rome, Paris and London. The programme has also funded 66 projects across all faculties, with 55 partners in and around Rome and Paris.
