In 2017, fifteen R&I projects were approved in ERA-NET Cofund Smart Urban Futures (ENSUF), a collaboration between JPI Urban Europe and the European Commission, to address urgent and long-term urban challenges by co-creating ideas and projects. Stakeholders in over 65 cities and 20 countries have since then been involved in the projects and you can now access project results in a variety of forms:

1. Projects Results Catalogue towards smart and sustainable futures
2. Final event outputs for future partnerships and joint impact creation
3. Over 25 policy recommendations to launch in time for the Policy Conference 12 Nov
4. Call synthesis to launch in stages winter and spring 2020/2021
5. Ten ENSUF projects in the Urban Lunch Talks 2018 – 2020
6. Twenty project’s results interviews

The ENSUF projects created insights and results on urban transformations that are valuable experiences for the proposed Horizon Europe partnership Driving Urban Transitions to a Sustainable Future and it’s three thematic pillars. Several ENSUF projects will exhibit their results at the upcoming policy conference “Stepping up the game- Driving urban transitions” on 12 November. Participants to the conference will also be able to explore policy recommendations by ENSUF projects which are to be launched in time for the conference.

Ten ENSUF projects have, in search for ways to handle urban dilemmas, joined the Urban Lunch Talks and in dialogue synthesized their insights together with stakeholders in more fields and cities. You can listen to the recorded talks via the links in the newsletter. The Urban Lunch Talks have since 2018 attracted participants from over 40 different countries and six continents. JPI Urban Europe supported projects are regular guests as they bring their innovation results to the (lunch) table.
