JPI Urban Europe announces results of Urban Migration call
On 7 December 2020, JPI Urban Europe published the list of successful projects of its Urban Migration call. The eight selected projects consist of transdisciplinary and cross-sectoral communities of researchers and practitioners. Participants are located in Austria, Germany, Latvia, Sweden and the United Kingdom. The projects will work with various areas of urban migration, ranging from training community-based researchers and gender-aware methods, local strategies to address the exclusion from essential services of migrants with precarious residential status, arts-programmes for migrants and placemaking linkages. Some projects will practice living labs, such as ‘Practices-of-Sharing-Labs’ - a form of urban real-world experiments, to test practices of sharing. Several projects focus on housing: long-term housing, innovative housing strategies and new types of housing with elements of collaboration and participation.
The awarded projects are:
MICOLL: Migration and housing: meeting refugees’ housing needs through collaborative housing programmes (AT partner: Universität Linz – Institute of Innovation Management)
