Two weeks until pre-proposal deadline in ERA-NET Cofund Urban Transformation Capacities

In the ERA-NET Cofund Urban Transformation Capacities (ENUTC) Call, 16 national research and innovation funding agencies, from 14 European countries (namely members of the Joint Programming Initiative Urban Europe), with the European Commission, have earmarked a global budget of about 18.4 M€ to support transnational R&I projects. The call applies a two-step application process, in which the first step involves the submission of a pre-proposal outline and the second step is for submission of complete full proposals. The pre-proposal deadline is on 15 April 2021.

Projects should clearly build upon previous experiences of building capacity in practice and build upon existing knowledge of transformation capacities towards urban sustainability, resilience and liveability. Projects should study transformation processes and transformative capacity building for increased knowledge and understanding of such processes making it possible to  develop this knowledge further. Projects are encouraged to use new technologies and tools for implementation of research and innovation and to ensure possibilities for scaling up. These principles apply to all three call topics as an overarching entry point.

So far, over 200 meetings have been organised in the matchmaking platform (B2Match) and the information webinar attracted over 500 participants. You can find all relevant materials and links via the call page, including webinar recordings, the LinkedIn group, the official call text and submission documents.
