European and international projects

The Foundation for Urban Innovation is actively involved in the development and the implementation of projects funded by the European Union or other international public and private bodies. It is also part of international networks on the topics within its areas of competence.

Through its participation in international activities, the Foundation intends to increase cooperation with organisations from other European and non-European countries, thus fostering the exchange of experiences and best practices, and testing experimental approaches.

By providing its expertise in research and training, co-design and outreach activities, in particular on methodologies for civic participation, co-design and co-production, the Foundation collaborates on projects in various fields, such as urban planning, urban design and tactical urbanism, urban policy innovation, environment and energy, sustainable mobility, cultural welfare and cultural policies, neo-mutualism and collaborative economics, and urban regeneration.

EIT Climate-KIC

Since January 2016, the Foundation is affiliated partner of EIT Climate-KIC
Supported by the European Institute of Innovation and Technology, we identify and support innovation that helps society mitigate and adapt to climate change.
