Global Urban Research Unit

Global Urban Research Unit

We combine traditional and innovative approaches to analyse cities and towns, to better understand place and its potential creative and sustainable transformation.

In 2018, GURU celebrated its 25th anniversary. To mark the occasion and showcase its achievements we have produced a Timeline which showcases selected examples of our research projects - funded by a wide range of local, national and international organisations - and publications, some of which have been highly influential in shaping the debate in the field. It highlights some of GURU’s key achievements and contributions to academic and practice communities, indicating a long standing determination to generate lasting and visible impacts.
