Centre for Urban Processes, Resilient Infrastructures & Sustainable Environments (UPRISE)

UPRISE research centre draws on existing and nurtures new talent to integrate social, technical, ecological, cultural and political expertise and set the agenda for research and practice on future cities. Our distinctiveness is in exploring and excavating the boundaries and inter-relationships between urban processes, resilient infrastructures and sustainable environments. Our researchers have worked with the European Union, UK research councils, and a range of local and regional partners.

Our work is at the forefront of international efforts to address complex urban sustainability challenges in conjunction with Mistra Urban Futures Centre and we work closely with Salford Dementia Institute on research into independent living. As well as developing new projects in relation to climate impacts and strategies for local economic development. Internationally our researchers work with partners across the globe, but also have closely worked with local organisations like Manchester Fire and Rescue and Salford Flood Forum. Our work is important in helping Salford communities to live sustainably.
