What are your urgent challenges in urban transitions? What are the ‘hardest cases’  in sustainable urban development? We want to shape our research and innovation strategy according to your needs and priorities.

Dear colleagues,

We in JPI Urban Europe (please find an introduction below) are updating our Strategic Research and Innovation agenda in 2018. In order take up the most relevant themes/topics and to provide the framework conditions for cities/urban areas/municipalities and other urban actors to take part in our activities and calls for proposals we recently launched a Public Consultation process. We like to invite you all to participate in the survey to help us shape our strategy according to your needs, challenges and framework conditions.

The survey can be found here:

Many thanks,Johannes
