Urban Analytics MSc

The ITINERANT project explored the use of new forms of data to investigate human mobility in its relationship with urban functions and existing inequalities. Our research activities covered different aspects of human mobility, including how COVID-19 played a role in reshaping mobility patterns; building upon the Urban Grammar project (, we introduced a novel classification of urban environments in terms of their functions to better contextualise human mobility, and analysed existing inequalities in how people navigate such urban functions. In this session, we will walk you through our findings with three presentations lasting 20 minute: 0:00 Urban Exodus?
