ICSU has launched a new research programme on Urban Health and Wellbeing and IUE was selected to host the International Programme Office after a six-month open competition.

The Urban Health programme is a 10-year interdisciplinary research effort whose overall aim is to generate policy-relevant knowledge that will improve health status, reduce health inequalities and enhance the well-being of urban dwellers. It will focus on the integration of natural, social, medical and engineering sciences using systems approaches to address the complexity of urban issues and their influence on health. The International Programme Office will be led by an Executive Director. It will support the work of an international Scientific Committee which is responsible for overall scientific planning. Funding for five years has been secured from the Institute of Urban Environment, Xiamen Municipal Government, China Association for Science and Technology (CAST) and the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS).
