The Foundation’s research supports our mission by exploring the macro drivers and trends of urban innovation.

The Foundation conducts its research in a pragmatic manner, filling the gap between purely academic research and industry R&D to produce actionable recommendations to develop and sustain an ecosystem where urban innovation thrives.

The Foundation supports an active Fellows’ program. These recognized thought leaders work with us for 9-18 months to produce original, case study-based research on urban innovation in our four focus areas.

They leverage our privileged access to the world’s leading international companies and policymakers to move the debate forward.
