The Urban Development Network is set out in the ERDF regulation for the Cohesion Policy 2014-2020 and will involve the urban authorities throughout the EU implementing integrated urban strategies in line with ERDF Article 7 and those implementing Innovative Urban Actions in line with Article 8.
However, as programming for 2014-2020 is not yet complete, the European Commission is opening the conference to a much wider audience.
This event will focus on:
- Innovation in European cities
- Integrated sustainable urban development and how to use European programmes and funds to support it
- Integrated territorial investment (ITI) and bottom-up approaches (CLLD)
- The new URBACT programme
The conference will bring together participants representing European cities, city associations, local, regional and national representatives, as well as academics and Commission services.
