JPI Urban Europe

Content Description

JPI Urban Europe invites you who are involved in urban development or urban research and innovation to discuss how to realize urban transition with us and other engaged city actors.

During this two days event you will share experiences of working with urban sustainability and explore how others cope with challenges faced. It's an opportunity to develop your network and meet with people who are passionate about defining the 'European urban mission' from cities and regions across Europe.

Sharing your knowledge and ideas with us will help us shape our new Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda. The frame of our discussion are the UN Agenda 2030 Sustainable  Development Goals as well as the Urban Agenda for the European Union.


The programme includes:

  • Review and build upon the JPI Urban Europe public consultation
  • WALKshops to explore and experience local cases of urban development and initiatives in the City of Bucharest
  • WORKshops to reflect and elaborate dilemmas and potentials of urban transitions and identify common ground for transnational collaboration and research needs
  • Networking opportunities to exchange on experiences and good practice in urban transition across countries and disciplines
  • 1.5 days of activities to shape the European Urban Mission together
