Urban Innovative Actions (UIA) is an initiative of the European Union that provides urban areas throughout Europe with resources to test new and unproven solutions to address urban challenges. This initiative is funded by the European Regional Development Fund.
The third Call for Proposals, launched on 15December 2017, is dedicated to four topics: Air quality, Adaptation to climate change, Housing, Jobs & Skills in the local economy.
During the seminar, participants will be introduced to the main principles and criteria of UIA projects with the possibility to interact with representatives of UIA projects selected within the first Call for Proposals and hear their testimony. Detailed information will also be provided on the eligibility rules for urban authorities as well as on the selection process and the main information to be included in the Application Form.
During the second part of the day, individuals consultations will be organised between participants who would have registered for it and members of the UIA Secretariat and from Commission services.
