The Philosophy of the City Research Group (PotC) takes the city as an object of study, focusing on its political, social, epistemological, metaphysical, ethical, and environmental dimensions. 

From an interdisciplinary perspective, it incorporates disciplines such as urban planning, environmental science and studies, ecology, architecture, geography, and the arts. Research questions often deal with applied philosophy and ethic, and utilize established knowledge from other areas of study. All philosophical traditions are welcome. Membership is open to anyone with an interest in the philosophical dimensions of the city.

The group was founded in 2013 and holds an international conference annually, hosted by a University each time in a different city. The aim is to propose and discuss about topics of interest for the city actualizing research fields from both global and local perspectives.
