The programme enables cities from across Europe to work together to develop solutions to major urban challenges, reaffirming the key role they play in facing increasingly complex societal changes.
Projects approved through this 3rd URBACT Call for proposals will address one of the 8 topics defined for this call, and partner cities will be requested to consider the 3 following challenges:
• How to manage urban development in the context of the economic and financial crisis
• How to foster integrated and sustainable approaches to urban development
• How to develop efficient partnerships and multi-level governance processes
