JPI Urban Europe Conference: Policy Day

May 29

Why is it so difficult to speed up urban transition? Using the Global Sustainable Development Goals and the EU Urban Agenda as a starting point, we will discuss urban challenges and the role of research and innovation in transitioning European cities.

Mayors from European cities will reflect on their current challenges and results from JPI Urban Europe funded projects will be presented. The long-term strategy of JPI Urban Europe will be reflected against international urban policies and strategies.

Target groups: Policy makers, research community, urban practitioners, experts from cities and regions, Member States, Brussel-based urban networks and European Institutions.

The event is co-hosted by the European Committee of the Regions, the European Commission and JPI Urban Europe. Following the conference there will be an evening networking event.

Registration opens March 29 and closes May 15.
Detailed information about the events including detailed programs for all days will be available on the JPI Urban Europe website end of March. Read more about JPI Urban Europe Cities day on May 30
