A new call for proposals for up to 25 Transfer Networks for 2014 – 2020 is now open
Deadline for applications: 10 January 2018 (15h00 CET)
Transnational exchange and learning networks are one of the core strands of activities of the URBACT programme. They aim to support European cities with the design and implementation of sustainable integrated urban policies. Depending on their local situation and needs, cities may join URBACT by taking part in 3 different types of networks:
Action-planning Networks: supporting cities in addressing a policy challenge by producing an integrated action-plan
Implementation Networks: supporting cities with the delivery of an existing integrated urban strategy/ action-plan
Transfer Networks: supporting cities in adapting and re-using a good practice to enhance their urban policies
The present call aims to support Transfer Networks focused on the adaptation and transfer of established Good Practices amongst EU cities. These networks will be led by cities that have been awarded the URBACT Good Practice label. The URBACT Transfer Network is an exchange and learning tool for cities. They target cities that are:
Cities interested in transferring (importing) one of the 97 labelled URBACT Good Practices: To tackle a specific policy challenge with an integrated and sustainable solution and to adapt and re-use a tested and effective practice in their own city context;
Cities awarded the URBACT Good Practice label: To lead and mentor the process of understanding, adapting and reusing their Good Practice and to refine and improve their own methodology through peer reviews and with the support of URBACT experts.
To learn everything about the call for proposals and how to apply, please consult the page of the CALL and all the related documents. You can discover all of the 97 URBACT Good Practices on a dedicated website of the programme.
A call for URBACT experts to support the networks in designing and implementing transnational learning activities is equally open.
