Information Webinar for Applicants for the Positive Energy Districts and Neighbourhoods Call

JPI Urban Europe is pleased to invite you to a webinar for applicants for the call Positive Energy Districts and Neighbourhoods organised by the PED Programme (JPI Urban Europe / SET Plan Action 3.2 on Smart Cities and Communities) on 14 May, 2020, 10.30-11.45 CEST.

With this first of a series of calls on the topic of Positive Energy Districts and Neighbourhoods (PED/PEN), JPI Urban Europe invites transdisciplinary and cross-sectoral communities of researchers and practitioners to create projects with focus on smaller-scale joint R&I projects (duration 1-2 years) on PED/PEN implementation, providing transnational alignment, comparison and exchange of experiences between ongoing (European) projects in different PED implementation phases, their integration in general urban strategies, stakeholder involvement strategies and the role of geographical/climatic conditions. The call is open for proposals until 24 September 2020.

The results from projects granted in this call should help to facilitate knowledge transfer and learning from different European contexts, cities and countries to create greater engagement and understanding in PED implementation processes.

Participating countries: Austria, Belgium/Brussels Capital Region, Czech Republic and Sweden
