Call JPI Urban Europe
Now open: Joint Call for Proposals 2013: Research and experimental development for creating attractive, sustainable and economically viable urban areas
JPI Urban Europe Call
Joint Programming Initiative (JPI) Urban Europe is dedicated to strengthen European research and innovation in the field of urban development. This Call for Proposals is working to that goal by combining resources available for research and innovation that has traditionally been allocated nationally, and enable the funding of transnational projects with the potential to observe, explore, understand, and experiment with aspects of urban life that goes beyond what can be addressed in a single country, as well as make possible cooperation between researchers and inventors in different countries. JPI Urban Europe invites you to form a consortium and suggest such projects, focusing on approaches with high potential for creating a clear added value from the specific form of international cooperation proposed. In addition to international cooperation, JPI Urban Europe aims at bringing together partners from different parts of society and promote interactions between researchers, policy makers, business and practitioners and civil society. A total public funding of approximately 15 M€ is jointly made available by 13 funding organisations in 10 countries, listed overleaf. The final list of participating agencies is subject to formal approval (total number may increase or decrease). The funding agencies involved have different preferences for strategic research, applied research, and innovation, which need to be matched to the application.
Two broad topics have been defined for this second call of JPI Urban Europe:
1. Governance of urban complexity
Cities are getting increasingly complex and new forms and structures for governance may be required to deal with this.
2. Urban Vulnerability, Adaptability, and Resilience
Enhance understanding of and response to natural, environmental, social, economic and technological shocks as well as gradual changes.
Who is Eligible?
JPI Urban Europe invites transnational consortia to submit proposals for collaborative research and innovation projects. Consortia are encouraged to include partners representing different sectors, such as universities, research institutes, cities, companies, NGOs, or stakeholder associations. Consortia must include partners from at least three different countries from the list of participating countries (see table overleaf). Partners from third countries not officially participating in the Call are welcome in a consortium but they need to fund their activities from other sources. Additional national eligibility criteria apply.
This joint Call offers to its participants, beyond the funds made available, also access to JPI Urban Europe and its growing network of researchers, practitioners, stakeholders and experts in urban development. Programme activities include programme seminars, dissemination of results and a central programme website. JPI Urban Europe is funded by its constituting member states.
