JPI Urban Europe Policy Conference 2019

  • 12/02/2019 - 10:00
The JPI Urban Europe community welcomes you to the fourth JPI Urban Europe policy conference with the main aim to launch the updated Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda (SRIA 2.0) and to provide an arena for discussions and exchange on urban transitions. The SRIA 2.0, with priorities for 2020-2026, has been refurbished with a view to issues and concerns in the wake of international policies such as UN Agenda 2030 SDG 11, UN-Habitat New Urban Agenda and Urban Agenda for the EU. In this light and to enhance urban transformation capacities and expertise, JPI Urban Europe has identified a need to foreground dilemmas in four transition areas and the wicked issues emerging in their pathways. The SRIA 2.0 will be launched at the conference and made available at the JPI Urban Europe website. In conjunction with the conference, other events such as a walkshop in Brussels and meetings within the Making Cities Work call, the Urban Europe Research Alliance and the SET Plan PED Programme will be arranged. The JPI Urban Europe community invites you to explore the dilemma-driven approach and define first steps towards implementation of the SRIA 2.0. Join urban practitioners, policymakers, researchers, European institutions and organisations and engage in discussions and networking. Listen to city leaders describing how experimentation, socio-technical innovation and stakeholder involvement can play an important role in local urban transition strategies. Together with other participants, apply your own knowledge and experience in interactive break-out sessions. The conference is co-hosted by the European Committee of the Regions and European Commission DG RTD. Break-out sessions are set up in collaboration with partnerships of the Urban Agenda for the EU and other networks and organisations. Invitation and Programme Register here
