UERA Seminar: The Role of Urban Research. Opening, Mediating, and Facilitating Pathways in Times of Multiple Crises

9 March 2023

The relevance of urban dimension is rapidly growing in shaping policies for sustainable development, as put in evidence by the inclusion of Goal 11 in the Agenda 2030 and the recent adoption of the EU Mission for 100 climate-neutral and smart cities. In this perspective, the role of urban research is fundamental in driving policy innovation. UERA is one of the key initiatives of JPI Urban Europe and brings together 58 European research organisations from 20 different countries committed to address the Driving Urban Transition pathways through the integration of environmental and socio-economic research in energy, mobility and circularity. Discussion will be focused on the role of research in supporting sustainable urban transition, considering an evolving institutional framework and innovative experiences.

The UERA seminar aims to discuss the role of urban research in progressing innovation capabilities and sustainable urban transitions.


We welcome abstracts (200 words) or presentation descriptions (10 lines description) exploring diverse transition pathways or topics that could inspire present and future urban models and good practices. You can submit your abstract or presentation description by 1 March (here).

A selection of final papers will be published after the conference in a Special Issue or a Book Serie – findings and overall suggestions enhancing inputs on the transition pathways and their interactions will be the primary output.
