City representatives, business actors as well as researchers will be invited to reflect on the future of Brussels within the new JPI Urban Europe project call “Making Cities Work”.

JPI URBAN EUROPE -  Project call "Making cities work"

Making Cities Work – Call for proposals launched on 24 October 2017 – deadline for submission 28 February 2018.

"Making Cities Work" is an Innovative pilot action of the JPI Urban Europe Program. This action is launched on initiative of 5 Urban Europe countries: Austria, Belgium, Finland, Norway and Sweden.

The call invites cities and municipalities, businesses, researchers, and other stakeholders to build transnational consortia to create challenge-driven innovation projects for European urban areas that have the potential to result in commercially successful services and products.

This call is tailored towards urban innovation projects, inviting the problem owners, such as cities, urban infrastructure operators or industry, to team up with science to jointly develop solutions for their pressing issues.

The call has to lead to projects with the aim of creating innovative solutions, getting to a proof of concept, demonstration, or test replicability and scalability.

This call is developed around 4 major topics:

  • Re-thinking urban mobility-Innovative solutions to reduce city congestion

  • Implementing the Smart Sustainable City-From pilot projects within sectors and neighborhoods to cross-sectoral services for citizens and business

  • Creating the city together Closing the gap between citizens, companies and city policy

  • Innovative and sustainable city change Reducing the negative impacts of construction sites
