SEiSMiC and JPI Urban Europe welcomes you to exchange, discussions and celebration as the SEiSMiC networks are handed over to JPI Urban Europe and the platform for stakeholder involvement (SIP) is started.
The FP7 funded SEiSMiC project is reaching its formal completion by the end of October. SEiSMIC has brought together a large number of urban stakeholders in ten different countries by conducting continuous exchange on European level.
Although the project is about to end, JPI Urban Europe will continue the dialogue with the SEiSMiC stakeholders, build on the experiences of the national networks and establish a platform for stakeholder involvement (SIP) to co-create the future strategic orientation of the initiative. SIP will be a very important tool to safeguard the ambition and principles of the JPI UE:
> To enhance the cities capacities for transition
> Tackling the complexity of urban development and sustainability
> Teaming up and interlinking with cities and urban stakeholders
> Raising the impact and supporting the exploitation of technological and social innovation.
This conference will present and interactively discuss the main achievements along the SEiSMiC journey before the networks are handed-over to JPI Urban Europe. Additionally, the SIP will be started by strategic dialogues on pressing topics for urban development, research and innovation as well as the framework conditions for the SIP in interactive settings. You will receive the detailed agenda in due course.
SEiSMiC and JPI Urban Europe would like to welcome you in Brussels for two days of discussions, exchange and celebration.
