The Urban Big Data Centre (UBDC) will provide a unique facility for researching complex and cross-cutting urban issues such as transport, employment, migration, housing, education and social exclusion. The Centre will bring together an internationally-outstanding combination of researchers and data, focussed on the City of Glasgow but linked to extensive local, national and international networks and facilities. The project will be led by University of Glasgow, with the universities of Edinburgh, Cambridge, Reading, Bristol and Illinois-Chicago as partners.
