Summer School 2021

About us

The University of Greenwich Networks and Urban Systems Centre has multi-disciplinary expertise exploring the expanding frontiers of urban challenges and opportunities to improve quality of life, competitiveness and sustainability. With expertise in transport, supply chain and social network systems, we focus primarily on:

  • Distributed and overlapping production systems (e.g. IT clusters, health);
  • Healthy and high-quality urban ecosystems;
  • Business models for technologically transformed social systems;
  • Global value chains

We have the largest concentration of business network analysts in Europe, applying the techniques of organisational network analysis to a wide range of business problems, re-conceiving individual firms, organisations and markets as structured relationships.

Our experts have published widely and are working on a range of current research projects including knowledge transfer within the creative industries, high-tech industrial clusters, diffusion through networks, enhanced networking with social media, black and minority ethnic career support networks and inter-organisational networks in global value chains.
