We Are pleased to announce the Future Cities PhD Prize Fellowship winners for 2017 

The funding and support provided through the fellowship is intended to allow these talented young Cambridge PhD students to develop their research and produce papers summarising their ideas about how future cities may be designed, developed, operated and lived within to meet social, economic and environmental aims.  The research students will also have the opportunity to present their research and do poster presentations with discussion at the second Future cities Conference on July 18th 2017 at Jesus College in Cambridge. 

Below you can see the PhD Fellows and the range of research for this year drawing on a range of disciplines and topics related to the future of cities:

Here is what one of the 2016 PhD Prizewinners had to say:

 “I was very pleased to have been given the opportunity to contribute to the Future Cities initiative. It allowed me to explore some areas of research relevant to my future career, that I wouldn't have been able to do otherwise. The work I did also complimented other parts of my PhD and through it, I engaged with other people from across the University who all are interested in cities but from very different perspectives."  

Simon Price, 2016 PhD Future Cities Fellow
