For the projects funded in the ERA-NET Cofund Smart Urban Futures the Projects Meeting is the official kick-off.

Time and place: 31st of May 2017, 09.00 – 17.00, in Brussels, La Tricoterie, Rue Théodore Verhaegen 158
Registration for the Projects Meeting below

JPI Urban Europe continuously expands its portfolio of research projects. To bring most value from this, the programme management aims to strengthen the urban research and innovation community, building upon projects results, identifying barriers for inter- and transdisciplinary cooperation and needs for new approaches in funding and programming and providing a platform to exchange views, network and match-make for future calls or activities. Annual projects meetings are important forums for this.

Present project results
At the meeting representatives from JPI Urban Europe management board will share information about the latest developments in terms of programme management and prioritiesfor future calls and activities. All projects funded in the ERA-NET Cofund Smart Urban Futures are invited to present their projects in a cavalcade of short pitches. Three projects from pilot call I and II and ERA-NET Cofund Smart Cities and Communities that are near to completion will be invited to present their results at the meeting. Please contact katarina.schylberg@iqs.se if you wish to make a presentation.

Share skills and engage in in-depth discussions in workshops
Projects are invited to share skills and learn from each other in specific areas related to communication of results, influencing policy, approaching potential project partners, setting up urban living labs and keeping stakeholders involved over time. Participants will have the opportunity to share insight and give feedback on each other’s projects in a poster session and to engage in content related in-depth discussions, to explore the links in ongoing projects and future cooperation in breakout sessions.

Welcome to register two partners from each project!
We ask you to register one researcher and one project partner representing a non-academic organization, i.e. city, business, civil society etc. to participate and represent your project. We strive for a broad representation and geographical distribution among the participants at the meeting and we kindly ask each project to keep this in mind when selecting representatives. If you wish to have more than two project partners present at the conference please send an e-mail to events@jpi-urbaneurope.eu so that we can organize a waiting list. Registration is open
