The European Commission has announced the selection of 4 topics for the 4th UIA Call for Proposals to be launched in October 2018.
The four topics selected are:
• Digital transition
• Urban poverty
• Sustainable use of land
• Urban security
Different Directorates General at the European Commission are now working to develop the full descriptions for each of the selected topic. These full descriptions will be available on the UIA website by April 2018.
The 4th UIA Call for Proposals will be officially launched in October 2018 during a dedicated event in the framework of the European Week of Regions and Cities in Brussels. The date of the event will be communicated before the summer. During the event representatives of the European Commission as well as urban authorities involved in the corresponding partnerships of the Urban Agenda for the EU will provide participants with more detailed information on the 4 selected topics.
As for the previous Calls for Proposals, following the official launch of the 4th Call, the Permanent Secretariat will start the information and support activities to beneficiaries (applicant seminars, webinars, online Q&A sessions, online surgery sessions, etc).
