JPI Urban Europe invites all projects funded in the Urban Migration call and their stakeholders to an online projects kick-off meeting. The meeting provides an opportunity for the project partners to meet and to share knowledge, introduce their projects, engage in strategic discussions and find partners for future cooperation. You can register at the bottom of this page.
Time: Tuesday September 14, 13.30 – 17.15 (CEST)
Target audience: Urban Migration projects (3 participants from each project), representatives from JPI Urban Europe funding agencies and other key people.
Registration: Please register at least three representatives as soon as possible but no later than August 20, see bottom of this page.
Join the JPI Urban Europe community and receive important information!
The purpose of the meeting includes networking activities and strategic discussions. The aim is to provide useful information and to establish a strong community from the start. All projects are invited to give short “pitches” in a cavalcade of projects. Participants will have a chance to explore the links to ongoing projects and future cooperation in breakout sessions.
Welcome to register three partners from each project to different breakout sessions
Be sure to join with at least three representatives from every Urban Migration project to join the plenary and different breakout sessions. This also helps to ensure a good balance between researchers and partners outside academia at the meeting.

Session: Urban governance of housing issues
To be able to manage migration and assist the long-term integration of migrants, cities need to develop solid housing practices and measures. Participants will discuss the different projects’ approaches like collaborative housing, sharing of spaces and resources, and other innovative housing strategies and how to include city administrations and other stakeholders.
Session: Socio-spatial integration and involvement of citizens and city administrations
Socio-spatial integration of migrants, citizen involvement, and appropriate management within city administrations require commitment in both migrant and host communities. Participants will learn about novel approaches in the different cities engaged in projects funded by this call and explore cooperation with the civil society and public services.
