Call pre-announcement: URBACT: Good Practices / Transfer Networks

Deadline

Doelstellingen

Upcoming calls :

  • Autumn 2016: call for good practices
  • Spring 2017: Call for the creation of up to 15 Transfer networks
  • 2018: call for the creation of up to 20 Action-Planning Networks

URBACT’s mission is to enable cities to work together and develop integrated solutions to common urban challenges, by networking, learning from one another’s experiences, drawing lessons and identifying good practices to improve urban policies.

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

Begunstigden

The URBACT III programme area consists of:

  • The 28 EU Member States
  • Partner States Norway and Switzerland. Partners from Norway and Switzerland cannot make use of ERDF allocations, but as official partner states in the URBACT III programme partners are co-financed at 50% by national funds.
  • Instrument for Pre Accession (IPA) countries. Partners from IPA countries can participate in networks using IPA funding, without receiving ERDF co-financing
  • Other countries. Partners from other countries, anywhere in the world, can participate with their own funding.

  • Metropolitan authorities and organized agglomerations in cases where they are represented by a politico-administrative institution having delegated competences for policy-making and implementation in the policy area covered by the URBACT network.

There is no limit of size (population) for cities wishing to participate in URBACT activities.In addition to city partners, Action Planning Networks can also include a limited number of other beneficiaries (non-city partners). The list of other eligible beneficiaries (non-city partners) is defined as follows:

  • Local agencies defined as public or semi-public organisations set up by a city, partially or fully owned by the city authority, responsible for the design and implementation of specific policies (economic development, energy supply, health services, transport, etc.)
  • Provincial, regional and national authorities, as far as urban issues are concerned;
  • Universities and research centres, as far as urban issues are concerned

In order to be eligible, other beneficiaries (non-city partners) must be public authorities or Equivalent Public Bodies.

For Action Planning Networks, other beneficiaries can join the partnership only after the first approval for Phase 1. All partners involved in Phase 1 application shall be cities. The final partnership for Phase 2 can include a maximum of 3 non-city partners.
