"Action Planning Networks"

The programme will support the design of integrated strategies and action plans for sustainable urban development in European cities building on participatory approaches.

Applicant details

The main beneficiaries of actions implemented under Objective 2 shall be cities from EU 28 Member States, Norway and Switzerland willing to develop integrated strategies and action plans for sustainable urban development. Under URBACT III, the beneficiary “city” refers to the public local authority representing:

  • Cities, municipalities, towns;
  • Infra-municipal tiers of government such as city districts and boroughs in cases where they are represented by a politico-administrative institution having competences for policy-making and implementation in the policy area covered by the URBACT network concerned in which they are willing to get involved;
  • Metropolitan authorities and organized agglomerations in cases where they are represented by a politico-administrative institution having delegated competences for policy-making and implementation in the policy area covered by the URBACT network concerned. 

 

In addition, a number of non-city partners are eligible for actions implemented under Objective 2. The list of other eligible beneficiaries is defined as follows:

  • Local agencies defined as public or semi-public organisations set up by a city, partially or fully owned by the city authority, responsible for the design and implementation of specific policies (economic development, energy supply, health services, transport, etc.)
  • Provincial, regional and national authorities, as far as urban issues are concerned; 
  • Universities and research centres, as far as urban issues are concerned.

 

Priority will be given to cities under Objective 2. The number of non-city partners in action-planning networks will be limited. The maximum number of non-city partners will be defined in the calls for proposals for the creation of actionplanning networks.
