Handing over the reins
Hans-Günther Schwarz, a long-time employee for the Austrian government with research and innovation topics related to energy, has spent the past 13 years to the foundation and growth of the DUT European partnership and its predecessor the Joint Programming Initiative (JPI) Urban Europe. A true driving force behind their development, he is now embarking on retirement. 

The DUT team would like to thank Hans-Günther for all his enthusiasm and advocacy aimed to strengthen and align the European research and innovation ecosystem to benefit urban transitions and share his recipe for the future.
"As research and innovation funders we want to bring about a certain change through the funding we offer. Our focus extends beyond mere innovation and competitiveness; our commitment lies in achieving a specific mission – the transition towards sustainability and climate neutrality at the urban level. As we embark on this mission, we embrace a spirit of shared leadership. There is no leadership to be expected from someone above; instead, shared leadership has been the key to our success in the past years and will remain essential going forward."
