Brokerage event: Making Cities Work


Imagine you have Europe’s smartest heads working hard to solve your city’s problems. This can be the case if you join us in Brussels May 30.

JPI Urban Europe hereby invites city representatives to come forth and tell us, researchers and industrial actors what their biggest challenges are. We need to know, so we can tailor our upcoming innovation call to your needs.
Research and innovation funding usually has a thematic approach. It can be energy, transport, climate changes, health or various combinations of themes. The call Making Cities Work is no exception. But the theme is very broad: How to develop the future’s sustainable and livable cities? We want cities themselves to co-create the call with us, to make sure it addresses the right challenges.

The topics that emerge from this brokerage event will be taken up in the call for Making Cities Work. This call will open in fall 2017 and will close in spring 2018. After evaluation, the selected projects could start in summer 2018. The call aims for innovation projects, which implement knowledge and work towards solutions for concrete urban challenges.
