Directed by Professor Darren Robinson, the Laboratory of Urban Complexity and Sustainability (LUCAS) is an interdisciplinary team of academics, research fellows and PhD students. We are working on projects to better understand how cities function, socially and physically, and how this functioning and its consequences for social, economic and environmental sustainability can be improved upon.
Further information on our work can be found on our research pages and blog.
LUCAS is also a key component of the University's Sustainable and Resilient Cities Research Priority Area (RPA).
The hub of our activity is the Leverhulme Research Programme Grant Sustaining urban habitats: an interdisciplinary approach. The ambitious aim of this project is to transform our understanding of how sustainable cities, and by extension our species, can be.
Our objectives in achieving this aim are to:
