Concordia establishes Next-Generation Cities Institute

November 17, 2020
Concordia University has launched the Next-Generation Cities Institute, which will combine research from 14 university research centres to engage with sustainability and resiliency within city planning. Over 200 researchers from a wide variety of disciplines will have the opportunity to contribute to projects focused on sustainability. “As an institute, we want to build new knowledge about the integrated, sustainable design of our urban environments, passing from the technical, to the built, to the socio-cultural qualities of the city, and we want this knowledge to be shareable with other cities around the world,” said Carmela Cucuzzella, Associate Professor, Design and Computation Arts at Concordia.
