URBAN TRANSITIONING - A JOINT ADVENTURE
The fourth JPI Urban Europe policy conference aiming at launching the updated Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda (SRIA 2.0) and at providing 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 Positive Energy Neighbourhoods Programme will be arranged.
This conference welcomes all actors interested in sustainable urban transitions such as policy-makers, mayors, city administration, urban practitioners, urban experts and researchers, representatives from Member States, Brussels-based urban networks and European institutions.
