Governing Board

The Governing Board (GB) is the ultimate decision-making authority of JPI Urban Europe and is responsible for the overall strategic orientation. All JPI Urban Europe members have a seat on the GB and are required to bring decision-making authority for their country. The European Commission participates on a permanent basis as an observer.

Members

Membership of JPI Urban Europe is open to all EU Member States and Associated States of the EU Framework Programme. Other countries may contribute to JPI Urban Europe activities on an individual basis. Currently, JPI Urban Europe has 15 members: Austria, Belgium, Cyprus, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Latvia, the Netherlands, Norway, Romania, Slovenia, Sweden and the United Kingdom.

Observers

To assess cooperation opportunities and benefits prior to a full membership, countries can apply as observers. Observers can participate in all joint actions and have access to the various working groups but have no voting rights in the Governing Board. Poland, Portugal, Spain, Turkey and Estonia are observers. More countries are involved in specific JPI Urban Europe activities. Learn more about how to get involved in JPI Urban Europe, here.
