25 Transfer Networks approved!

04 April 2018

25 Transfer Networks gathering 75 European cities were approved by the Monitoring Committee of the programme on 4 April 2018.

20 countries are covered by the 25 networks. 36% of cities involved in the 25 networks are newcomers to URBACT.
Each network, composed of 3 cities, is starting a first working phase of 6 months during which it is granted resources to extend the partnership by identifying relevant partners, develop a common understanding of the Good Practice to be transferred, explore the conditions and requirements for a successful transfer in the local context, and the definition of the methodology for transfer activities. The Transfer Networks will have to be made of at least 5 and up to 8 partners.

Below is the list of the 25 approved Transfer Networks. Congratulations to them!
We will shortly publish more information for cities interested to join these networks.
