About Us

The Urbis Research Forum is an informal space for diverse discussions exploring urban issues.

Established in the summer of 2009, the forum is not-for-profit and brings together anyone interested in cities and urban life. The Urbis Research Forum links people together by hosting regular meetings in Manchester for those who live in cities, people who work trying to design, manage and improve them and people who study or analyse them.

Forum activities include talks, roundtable discussions, walks and special events.  The meetings will be based around an inclusive and supportive dialogue with topics including, but not limited to, urban planning, history, culture, design and society.  The Urbis Research Forum also encourages dialogue about the past, present and future of Greater Manchester.  The proceedings will be published online through the Urbis Research Forum Review (ISSN: 2042-034X)

Each Urbis Research Forum session is free and there is no need to book.
