Launch of the first call for projects for URBACT IIIMarch 2015
Attended by European Commissioner for Regional Policy Corina Crețu, the URBACT III programme launch seminar took place on 16 March in Brussels.
In addition to an evaluation of URBACT II, the seminar was an opportunity for the participants to discuss potential partnerships and prepare the future thematic urban development networks of the new programme.
Further information about the seminar.
To respond to the first call for projects that has just been launched, applicants can submit their proposals on the URBACT website.
This new call for projects is an opportunity not to be missed by cross-border territories – these are home to 196 million inhabitants, 40% of the EU population – and more directly by cross-border conurbations. The MOT, through its network and its contacts throughout Europe, is ready to facilitate the search for partners in any project on urban cross-border cooperation.
It should be remembered that the MOT was lead partner of the "EGTC project" funded by URBACT between 2008 and 2010 on the governance of cross-border conurbations in Europe. The programme is organising a workshop at the end of April to provide guidance for the applications.Back to list
