Content of program
The DUT Partnership steps up the game to tackle urban challenges. Through research and innovation and capacity building, it enables local authorities and municipalities, service and infrastructure providers, and citizens to translate global strategies into local action. It develops the skills and tools to make urban change happen and boost the urgently needed urban transformations towards a sustainable future with enhanced quality of life in cities.
The Driving Urban Transitions (DUT) Partnership is an intergovernmental research and innovation programme addressing key challenges of urban transitions. Its ambition is to shape and facilitate an innovation eco–system so that all urban actors can engage and benefit. With currently 67 partners from 28 countries the DUT Partnership addresses the challenges which European cities face in their endeavour to become sustainable and enhance the quality of life for their citizens. The DUT Partnership also contributes substantially to the European Union Mission: Climate-neutral and Smart Cities Mission of Climate-neutral Cities, the European Green Deal, and the Urban Agenda for the EU.
The DUT partners jointly develop a European R&I strategy, implement joint calls and grants, and – with a strong participatory approach – translate the results of the funded projects into practice. A major objective of our partnership is to engage and collaborate with the manifold urban stakeholders to share experience and expertise and co-create knowledge and good practices. In this way the DUT Partnership helps creating more inclusive, safe, resilient, climate-neutral and sustainable cities across Europe.
