Upcoming call: Making Cities Work

JPI Urban Europe develops the ’Making Cities Work’ Call, to work on challenges posed by cities by making the transition from research to innovation and implementation.

This call will open in fall 2017 and will close in spring 2018. After evaluation, the selected projects can start in the summer 2018.

Keep informed of latest developments through the JPI Urban Europe website or by following JPI Urban Europe on Twitter.

This call will have the following focus:

Challenge-driven: cities are encouraged to express their needs and to be active in finding solutions together with companies, researchers, stakeholders and citizens.

Close to implementation: focus on innovative implementation of existing knowledge rather than the generation of new knowledge.

Space for innovation: join forces with cities, businesses, research and other stakeholder to spark creativity and solutions. Flexibility in run-time and funding.

European added value and impact: share and learn, scale-up and distribute solutions European-wide.
