MIT launches China Future City Lab

The China Future City Lab, a unique urban research and innovation program focused on advancing the quality of city life in urban China, will support a wide range of basic research in China, investigating many aspects of urban social and economic life, house the new MIT-Tsinghua Future City Innovation Connector, and engage with Chinese cities that will serve as “living labs” or testing sites where MIT researchers will have a unique opportunity to examine their urban-focused ideas and innovations.

DUSP's Siqi Zheng, Associate Professor of Real Estate Development and Entrepreneurship, is the head of the new lab and sees the lab as an opportunity for cultivating global collaborative projects, sharing the best of MIT and China with each other and other rapidly urbanizing nations.
