Urban Academy is a platform and network that brings together multidisciplinary research, teaching and societal impact in the field of urban studies. The main partners are University of Helsinki, Aalto University and City of Helsinki. Our vision is to create better cities for everyone through collaboration. Our method is co-creation, which enables the demolishing of boundaries between traditional academic disciplines and also between government organizations. Urban Academy brings together researchers and students, policymakers, urban planners, officials and residents to learn from each other through concrete case studies and problem solving.

Urban Academy is also a joint multidisciplinary study programme for Bachelor students of the University of Helsinki and Aalto University.
