JPI Urban Europe first Pilot Call

Basic Information

European cities are facing complex and widespread problems. Grand challenges such as demographic transformations, resource depletion and climate change, unequal social participation, congested transport networks, and difficult trade-offs in land use decisions can only be turned into opportunities if appropriate policy strategies are applied. Such policy actions need to be supported by dedicated co-ordination of Research and Innovation on the challenges and opportunities of urban environments in Europe. The aim of Joint Programming Initiative (JPI) Urban Europe is to coordinate research and innovation in order to make better use of Europe’s public funds. As part of this initiative Urban Europe intends to have two consecutive calls in a pilot phase during 2012-2013.

Network JPI Urban Europe
Aim of the joint call The aim of this first joint call of JPI Urban Europe is to bring together partners from across society and promote intensive interactions between researchers, policy makers, business and civil society resulting in an innovative and impact-oriented approach. The scope of the call is broad; it covers new and innovative approaches, promotes interdisciplinary research and collaboration and encourages the involvement of stakeholders, thus bridging gaps between research disciplines, citizens and decision makers, city and transport planners, producers and consumers.
