Welcome to the Institute for Urban Research

The Institute for Urban Research is a university-wide research centre that brings together all urban research at Malmö University.

Seeking to shape a collective identity for urban research at Malmö University, the IUR aims to create a research environment that clearly meets urban challenges across the globe.

The IUR is open to all research within the broad field of urban studies but has a specific focus on seven themes: housing and urban renewal, urban economics, mobilities, urban ecology, migration, social sustainability and smart cities.
