The Quito Urban Information Center encourages collaborative research. Through a network of professionals and institutions that coordinate their knowledge and efforts, we seek to construct a critical and cooperative investigation process, that allow us to learn new methodologies of communication and shared actions.

We have a multidisciplinary team of experts from different scientific areas, such as: Architecture, Urbanism, Geomatics, Biogeography, Gender, Sociology, Risk, Economics, Econometrics, Geostatistics, Data Analysis, among others.
Tomorrow’s Cities is a project that seeks to generate resilient cities to Multi-Hazard Scenarios and Dynamic Risk through to the involvement of key actors, both from the public and private sectors, and from the communities. This involvement will allow a sustainable urban development. The alliance between Tomorrow's Cities and CIUQ looks for mutual cooperation and exchange of information. This alliance will provide scientific support to carry out studies that lead to reduce the risk of disasters due to natural hazards in cities, as well as generating new city indicators.
The Armed Forces University -ESPE- through the degree of Engineering in Geospatial Technologies, generates and interprets geospatial information in order to use it to solve problems related to planning, land use planning, risk management, natural resource management , and especially in Geospatial Data Management. Through its connection with society program, it generates and promotes projects and research to improve the life quality of the population through social interest projects. The alliance ESPE - CIUQ will allow  us to incorporate technological aspects in our researchs.
The Latin American Faculty of Social Sciences, through its Master's Degree in Urban Studies, promotes the training of researchers with scientific knowledge in the field of territorial planning and in the formulation of public policies, in order to improve the life quality of the people in the city. Its alliance with the CIUQ strengthens the research networks in urban studies that allow understanding and explaining the problems of cities from a multidimensional and multiactor perspective.
