European Urban Initiative Expert Working Group

Location: Noble Hall, Alfandega
Date: Fri, January 31
Time: 3:00 PM - 6:00 PM

In the session, the state of play concerning preparations for the setting up of the European Urban Initiative (EUI) will be presented and discussed with the key stakeholders and the wider audience from the perspective of the support needs of cities. The EUI - which is part of the Cohesion Policy legislative proposal for 2021-2020 - is sought at ensuring coherent support for cities and strengthening integrated and participatory approaches to Sustainable Urban Development. The initiative should also provide a stronger link to other EU policies, and in particular to Cohesion Policy investments, and shall support inter-governmental cooperation on urban matters (Urban Agenda for the EU).
