The first Call for Proposals for the creation of up to 15 Implementation Networks shall be open shortly, normally on 22 March 2016. The call will be open for 3 months, meaning that candidates will have 3 months to prepare and submit their bids.
The main objective of Implementation Networks is to improve the capacity of European cities to manage sustainable urban policies and more especially to strengthen their ability to implement integrated strategies for sustainable urban development. This call will thus be targeting:
- cities from the EU 28 Member States, Norway and Switzerland
- that already have an integrated urban strategy/ action plan addressing a specific policy challenge
- and secured funding to finance the implementation of this strategy/ action-plan
