  • cooperation

Some of the 25 Transfer Networks recently approved under the URBACT fudnign programme are looking for partners! If you're interested to transfer their practice to your city, fill in their questionnaire and send it back before 7 May.

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

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.

Cities representative from the 28 EU member states, Switzerland and Norway can express interest in getting involved!

Deadline for expressing your interest, unless indicated otherwise: 7 May 2018.
