The Hyderabad Urban Lab Foundation (HULF)

Hyderabad Urban Lab (HUL) Foundation is an interdisciplinary research and action initiative based in Hyderabad. Founded in 2012, by a group of academics and development professionals, HUL has been conducting urban research and community engagement activities on a range of themes related to life in the “Urban.” The idea is to produce enabling knowledges about the city that lead to a reasonable understanding of the issues and challenges inherent in urban coexistence.

We do this through pure research, pedagogic programme, engagements with communities and mixed groups of people, collaborations with other organisations and frequent unticketed unsponsored public events in the city.

Our work, once it gains some shape, is available to those who help us to produce it and to those who wish to use the work for non-commercial purposes.
