You can make a Difference


ULI is a catalyst for raising industry standards in the responsible and innovative use of land worldwide. The Institute has long been recognised as one of the world’s most respected and widely quoted sources of objective information on urban planning, growth and development, on both a local and global scale. Our continued success depends on people like you.

How we are funded

The Urban Land Institute is a non-profit research and education institute supported by its members. ULI is funded by membership fees, corporate support, public sector grants, event attendance and philanthropic donations.

Research & Publications

ULI takes a bottom-up approach to research and publications. Ideas generated by ULI members are channelled through the Policy and Practice Committee, which forms an expert working group for each topic. These groups consist of
ULI members from across Europe and effectively operate as project-based virtual teams.


For decades, ULI has set the standard in recognising outstanding real estate development projects, related programmes and visionaries in urban development.ULI awards programmes are highly selective

Events & Meetings

ULI delivers timely and informative programmes to 4,000 professionals across Europe every year. Regular features in our annual events calendar include our Annual Conference in Paris in February and our Trends Conferences in the spring. We also offer more specialised programmes and meetings through the ULI Urban Investment Network, LessEn energy initiative, European Young Leaders Group and our National and European Councils.

European Councils

The Urban Land Institute created the European Councils to focus on specialised fields in land use and development. They are designed to provide a forum for education, exchanging information and sharing best practices.

Young Leaders

ULI Young Leaders is open to real estate professionals under the age of 35. Like ULI itself, Young Leaders has no boundaries in terms of geography and sectors, but allows young professionals to network with their own generation and peers at a similar stage in their career.


ULI’s LessEn energy initiative was born out of the need for a single, objective source of practical information on energy efficiency assembled in a way that is accessible to the layman.

The ULI Urban Investment Network

The ULI Urban Investment Network is an independent European network designed to promote and facilitate world-class investment in urban development. The initiative has been developed by ULI in collaboration with a group of leading cities, European institutions and private sector organisations.
