For urban professionals and researchers there are multiple options to participate in European research projects on urban development. An example of this are the projects of the Joint Programming Initiative Urban Europe (JPI Urban Europe). What is the added value of European knowledge development on urban areas? And what is the best way to gain this value?
The RURI-event on Wednesday April 13 in Amsterdam will allow municipal managers, policy makers, researchers and other stakeholders to come together as part of one of the events for the Dutch presidency of the EU. The event will take place at Pakhuis de Zwijger in Amsterdam.

What is the added value of European collaboration for knowledge development on urban areas? And which best practices are there for well-balanced urban research consortia and for knowledge strategies?

Keynote speakers Margit Noll (Chair Management Board JPI Urban Europe) and Markku Markkula (President of the European Committee of Regions) will tell about their experiences. In several parallel workshops knowledge, best practices and experiences will be shared. The focus will be on the ‘know-how’ of European knowledge development. The workshops will have a diverse scope: the role of Universities of Applied Sciences in European urban knowledge development, Amsterdam as a Smart City and the link with the European Urban Agenda.

The event will take place in English.
