Past event

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.
