Making Cities Work

Basic Information

Network JPI Urban Europe
Aim of the joint call A substantial knowledge base has already been created.However, much of this knowledge is not accessible to potential users and is not easily implemented. This call invites proposals for projects that tackle the barriers and address implementation issues. The projects will work on concrete urban challenges and focus on developing a proof of concept and learning on a European scale using transdisciplinary consortia with active participation of both municipalities and companies. For the development of this call, cities and public utilities across Europe have contributed actively to develop a vision on which urban challenges are most pressing to address and for which challenges learning and developing on a European scale has a real added value. Through both national and international brokerage events with cities’ representatives, businesses, researchers and NGOs the topics in this call have been decided upon.
