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]

El Índice Regional de Lisboa

CoverThe Regional Lisbon Index.
EU Regional Focus #03/2010, 26 June 2010.
URBACT is part of Europe's cohesion policy: its goal is to help implement the Lisbon-Gothenburg Strategy, which prioritizes competitiveness, growth and employment. The European Commission's Regional Policy department (DG REGIO) has just produced the latest in its series of short papers on regional research and indicators. This paper develops an indicator, the Lisbon Index, to measure how close an EU region is to achieving the main targets for 2010 on employment, education, and research and development, as set out in the EU's Lisbon Strategy.
On average, EU regions improved their score by 10 index points from 2000 to 2007. Nevertheless, the EU average moved quite slowly, increasing from 57 in 2000 to only 60 by 2007. Over this time, the ten fastest movers were: Corse in France (from a very low base), Comunidad Foral de Navarra, País Vasco, Cantabria, Extremadura, Galicia, La Rioja and Comunidad de Madrid in Spain, Kärnten in Austria and Liguria in Italy. All these regions improved their index by 25 points or more. Many URBACT cities are located in these regions. The top ten Lisbon regions include three Finnish, four Swedish and three UK regions, all scoring between 94 and 100. [+]

Ciudades y crisis económica

Cities and Economic Crisis: A survey on the impact of the economic crisis and the responses of URBACT II cities.
This report presents the results of a survey carried out by the URBACT programme in the 4th q uarter of 2009 on the impact of the economic crisis on European cities and their responses to it. The survey forms part of a broader package of work on cities and the crisis being undertaken by the URBACT II programme.
The survey itself has two main parts – firstly, the nature of the impact of the crisis on different kinds of cities and secondly, the nature of their response. The aim of the first part of the survey is to produce an overview of the ways in which the crisis is affecting the extremely diverse cities found in Europe today. As cities do not generally have access to comparable sources of data the purpose is not to try to quantify the impact but to try to identify a series of central or common themes among the very complex processes which are being played out at enormous speed across our urban landscape.
The second part of the survey provides an early picture of the types of response to the crisis that are being explored by European cities. Both parts of the survey will be used to help select and frame the case studies to be developed in the following phase of the study. [+]
