Ready for international cooperation?
The International Urban and Regional Cooperation programme is an opportunity for your city or region and local stakeholders to pair up with cities in Asia, Australasia and Latin and North America to exchange on sustainability and innovation, and to create lasting ties.
Join the online landing event on 14 April, 10.00-11.30 CET to find out how you can join and brainstorm in person for sustainability and innovation with your peers all over the world.
As the second phase of the International Urban Cooperation programme (IUC) (2016-2020), IURC will lead and develop decentralised international urban and regional cooperation in sustainable urban development and innovation in key partner countries and regions in line with the external dimension of Europe 2020.
Cities and regions across the EU will be able to cooperate with over 300 local and sub-national governments and their stakeholders (business, academia, civil society) in an international network encompassing the Americas (Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Mexico, Peru and the United States), Asia (China, India, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Republic of Korea, Thailand and Vietnam) and the Pacific (Australia and New Zealand).
In this first IURC webinar, you will be able to hear how to become part of the IURC network and get involved in the programme through city-to-city cooperation in the field of sustainable urban development and region-to-region cooperation in the field of innovation.
