Network

If you are a key player of sustainable urban development at European, national, regional or local level and you want to exchange and learn from your peers on a specific challenge, you can become a Lead Partner or a Project Partner of an URBACT network.

You should join an URBACT network if…


You are interested in URBACT and think about joining or setting-up a network? Before you make any decision, check where you stand regarding the following statements:

 

  • You wish to improve or change local policies
     
  • You want to share and exchange knowledge with other European cities working on the same problems/ challenges as your city does
     
  • Your city wants to develop a Local Action Plan to tackle a local problem or face a challenge
     
  • You want to involve inhabitants and relevant key stakeholders in the development of your local policies

If you feel in line with the above objectives, look at the sections below and consult as well our Open Calls for Networks Page.

What you can expect joining an URBACT network?

 
Joining an URBACT network will allow you to benefit from a structured and organised process of exchange and learning with peers across Europe, in the perspective of improving your local policies through concrete action-planning.
 
You will benefit from a tested and successful working method, combining transnational exchanges, action-oriented activities and capacity building tools:
 
  • The support of other urban practitioners

  • Financial envelope: for exchange and learning activities the co-financing rate is between 70 and 80% depending on your location
