These annual symposiums targets academic researcher first hand. They take place in different European urban areas or online with the intention to contribute to programming processes in JPI Urban Europe, related to strategic research and innovation to realise urban transition pathways.

The symposiums sometimes take place back-to-back with events in the Scientific Advisory Board (SAB) or Urban Europe Research Alliance (UERA).

Join our calls and the JPI Urban Europe community

To achieve the aim of transnational research coordination and cooperation, we prepare and facilitate calls for research and innovation projects.

JPI Urban Europe has in the past years come to grow into a community of many hundreds of researchers and practitioners all over Europe that exchange results and insights across projects, calls and countries. Projects supported in JPI Urban Europe benefit from established strategies on results dissemination and exploitation, and are active contributors to larger recurring events and arenas such as the Policy Conferences in Brussels, the AGORA Stakeholder Involvement Platform, the Urban Transitions Pathways Symposiums and popular cross-call Projects Meetings. Projects are actively featured in online channels – be it social media, web or webinars like the Urban Lunch Talks. Here, the funded projects exchange impact stories with cities and relevant research and innovation stakeholders.

As a project supported in JPI Urban Europe calls, you can look forward to a variety of supporting activities to enhance impact an co-learning across projects, places and calls. Projects selected for funding meet-and-greet in a facilitated kick-off, to help collaboration and synergy effects between projects from the beginning.

  • During the project duration, you are welcomed to the Urban Lunch Talks to exchange and make sense of results on-the-go. Projects also co-write policy- and practice recommendations and network in LinkedIn groups or by means of facilitated matchmaking.
  • Supported projects meet in a half-time event together with relevant stakeholders to present their findings on-the-go and explore and spread capacities and results
  • Towards projects end, you come together to join forces for the future and synthesise results to outside user groups
