La Comisión publica hoy una segunda convocatoria de proyectos por un valor de 50 millones de euros en el marco de la iniciativa Acciones Urbanas Innovadoras. Las ciudades pueden solicitar y recibir directamente financiación de la UE para proyectos urbanos innovadores. En Viena se ha creado una ventanilla única de servicios públicos para acompañar a los migrantes en su itinerario de integración en la ciudad. En Madrid se han creado cuatro centros en barrios con elevadas tasas de desempleo con vistas a la creación de puestos de trabajo en los sectores de la energía, la movilidad, el reciclaje y la alimentación, a la vez que se promueve la economía solidaria.

Estos son dos de los dieciocho proyectos ganadores de la primera convocatoria de Acciones Urbanas Innovadoras publicada el año pasado. La Comisión pone en marcha hoy una segunda convocatoria para premiar a los proyectos más innovadores presentados por las propias ciudades.

La nueva convocatoria, con un presupuesto de 50 millones de euros del Fondo Europeo de Desarrollo Regional (FEDER), recompensará los proyectos más innovadores en tres categorías, en consonancia con las prioridades de la Agenda Urbana para la UE: la integración de los inmigrantes, la movilidad urbana y la economía circular. La convocatoria estará abierta desde hoy hasta mediados de abril de 2017 (RAPID, IP/16/4367, 16.12.2016)

URBACT Good Practice Call 2017


We all know that in these difficult times cities face ever increasing urban challenges linked to demographic change, climate and environmental targets, unemployment and urban poverty to name but a few. As urban practitioners, we are all seeking practices which are relevant and overcome these barriers. Such practices, as far as URBACT is concerned, come in all shapes and sizes, all themes and topics. And when we say ‘good practice’ we do not necessarily mean something grand, innovative and demonstrating excellence.

URBACT believes that your city has ‘hidden’ good practices which interest other European cities and they do not need to be any of the above. What is more, the opportunity to learn from peers and adapt and reuse tried and tested practices without reinventing the wheel is an attractive option when scarcity of resources is a daily discussion. This call invites your city to come forward with your good practices in the field of sustainable integrated urban development to:

Be part of the pioneering group of URBACT Good Practices to be widely promoted at EU and international level
Be able to share the Good Practice within the framework of a Transfer Network (Call to be published in September 2017)

All the cities with selected good practices will be awarded the title URBACT Good Practice City. The label will provide your city with the recognition and visibility it deserves for the results accomplished.

Furthermore, a specially conceived mix of communication and promotional activities will be put in place to promote the label, your city’s practice and the story that lies behind it.  First of all, a Good Practice Festival will be organised in September 2017, where all the selected cities with good practices will take part and have the opportunity to network with European and city policy-makers. Other materials such as publications, presentations, videos and infographics will be produced and shared with urban practitioners from all over Europe, making sure that your story gets known.

By becoming an URBACT Good Practice City, you’ll have the chance to advocate for sustainable and integrated urban development at URBACT events and capacity-building activities (workshops and conferences at programme and project level) including the activities related to the contribution to Urban Agenda for EU. Last but not least, the label will also allow you to share your experience within the framework of a Transfer Network. This will not only allow you to lead and mentor the process of understanding and reusing your practice, but also to better refine and improve it by using an in-depth peer-review methodology. Deadline: 31 march 2017.  [más]

En el contexto de la Conferencia Hábitat III de las Naciones Unidas, la Comisión Europea ha presentado tres compromisos para alcanzar los objetivos mundiales de la Nueva Agenda Urbana.

La Nueva Agenda Urbana, adoptada en la Conferencia Hábitat III de las Naciones Unidas que se celebra esta semana en Quito, Ecuador, contiene directrices para lograr que las ciudades de todo el mundo sean más inclusivas, ecológicas, seguras y prósperas. Esta Agenda es clave en la aplicación de la Agenda 2030 para el Desarrollo Sostenible y de otros programas de reforma fundamentales, en particular el Acuerdo de París. Los socios de ONU-Hábitat, incluida la UE y sus Estados miembros, han presentado una serie de compromisos para poner en práctica la Nueva Agenda Urbana, precisando para cada uno de ellos el ámbito de aplicación específico y los resultados y logros esperados.

CoverThe State of European Cities Report, 2016 - Cities leading the way to a better future
European Union, 2016

This report highlights how the unique characteristics of European cities can support the EU priorities of jobs & growth, migration and climate action. Cities boost innovation, embrace people from different backgrounds and reduce our impact on the planet. Cities that operate at the metropolitan scale and have sufficient autonomy and resources can better exploit these urban advantages.

As cities have important investment needs, EU Cohesion Policy will provide more than EUR 100 billion for projects on innovation in SMEs, social integration, low-carbon mobility and energy efficiency in the period 2014-2020. To help cities learn from each other, the report compares the performance of cities and provides examples of policies that have worked.

This report was prepared to support the Urban Agenda for the EU and the new global Urban Agenda adopted. It was jointly produced by the Directorate-General for Regional and Urban Policy of the European Commission and UN-Habitat. [+]

In addition, the new Urban Data Platform, hosted on the Knowledge Centre for Territorial Policies operated by the Joint Research Centre, provides a single access point to common indicators on the status and trends in over 800 European urban areas – on demography, economic development or access to services, for example. This database will enable urban authorities and stakeholders to compare data, benchmark and monitor, which is one of the aims of the Urban Agenda. [+]
