Knowledge Hub (ENUAC)

In this continuation of the ERA-NET Urban Accessibility and Connectivity call, the goal is to establish a platform (Knowledge Hub) that enables exchanges within the field of urban accessibility and connectivity. The purpose of this platform is to overcome the fragmentation of experiences, competences and results.


A range of skills and capabilities are necessary to bring urban transformation strategies into action, which is also the reason why many national and European activities and projects are funded. Making research results available, transparent, and accessible to diverse stakeholders is key to ensuring that European and national R&I investments in urban transformation are delivering impact.

This call supports the ERA-NET Urban Accessibility and Connectivity (EN-UAC) proposed by the JPI Urban Europe as well as the future Horizon Europe Driving Urban Transition (DUT) Partnership objectives. EN-UAC addresses the challenges of sustainable urban passenger mobility, freight transport and connectivity as an integral and essential part of sustainable urban development, and the Knowledge Hub is expected to support EN-UAC by:

  • connecting the projects and initiatives of the ERA-NET to improve results;
  • contributing to the synthesis of results;
  • identifying results with a high potential for further validation or demonstration; and
  • engaging practitioners, policy-makers and funders of research in the hub’s recommendations and learnings.
