Mar 14, 2011
The Joint Programming Initiative (JPI) URBAN EUROPE, a research and innovation initiative of EU Member States and Associated Countries, now provided its Status Report.
Established in 2010 within the concept and framework of Joint Programming URBAN EUROPE aims to rethink and manage the increasing urban orientation and concentration in Europe in order to create and exploit synergy in an urbanised Europe, from an economic, social, environmental and transport-related perspective, leading to a strengthened global position of Europe.
THE JPI URBAN EUROPE has a clear focus on urban areas as key elements for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth. As urban areas are the main drivers of growth in the European economy, URBAN EUROPE therefore provides an important contribution to the EU 2020 strategy.
