The SLU Urban Futures platform were happy to see so many great proposals for the UF Open Call this autumn, from all over SLU. The fact that the proposals came from three different faculties – and all included a multi-, inter- or transdisciplinary perspective enhancing urban sustainability - shows that SLU is a lot more urban than people might think. Convinced by the promising topics the platform offered 7 instead of the intended 5 grants.

The following applications were granted:
