To assess cooperation opportunities and benefits prior to a full membership, countries can apply as observers. Observers can participate in all joint actions and have access to the various working groups but have no voting rights in the Governing Board. The annual fee for full members does not apply to observers.
Latvia, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Spain and Turkey are observers. More countries are involved in specific JPI Urban Europe activities.

Since one of JPI Urban Europe’s ambitions is to build up capacity in Europe on urban matters and establish a strong inter- and transdisciplinary research & innovation community, our initiative is interested in reaching out to related activities or projects that might be financed by other sources. The document below outlines the application procedure for a Letter of Support.
