We would like to welcome all currently running JPI Urban Europe projects to a cross-call projects meeting, and ENSUF Final Event. This event is by invitation only, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org if you have not received an invitation but would like to have one. A meeting link will be provided to all registrants a week before the event.
When? 29 September, 10.00- 16.00 (CEST)
Where? Via Zoom
For whom? All currently running JPI Urban Europe projects and involved Funding Agencies
The aim of the meeting is to exchange knowledge, discuss how (expected) results can best create impact in cities, and find partners for future activities. The ERA-NET Cofund Smart Urban Futures (ENSUF) projects have run between 2017-2020 and the Projects Meeting marks their Final Event. It is a good opportunity to learn from finalised projects and for projects across different calls, and at different stages, to exchange experiences.
You receive this invitation as part of an ongoing JPI Urban Europe project. Please share the invitation with your consortium partners and jointly agree on up to five participants from your ENSUF project, or up to three representatives if your project is part of another call than ENSUF, to join the event. Participation of at least one representative of a city/municipal partner or other stakeholder (NGO/business) is highly recommended. This event is mandatory for ENSUF projects and an optional opportunity for projects in all other calls.
Are you a funding agency or representative from a city, business or NGO? This event is an opportunity to learn in-depth how results can be applied and exchange in impact-focused workshops where research and innovation meet. How can stakeholders and projects make use of project results on an aggregated and synthesized level? Together, we take the first steps towards defining the legacy of the Smart Urban Futures call.
