Site Visits

Site Visits promote the exchange of best practices, policies and solutions between cities through an on-the-field visit and direct exchange between one Host City and up to five Visitor Cities. Site Visits offer a platform for cities that are leading important initiatives to showcase them to other peers and share their experience on a concrete domain.


Key topics of site visits for 2022-2023:

  • From Positive Energy Building to Positive Energy District
  • Upscaling of pilot projects within the own city/Governance innovation
  • Funding and new business models
  • Transition from a Fellow to a Lighthouse city
  • Digital transformation
  • Monitoring and evaluation


How to apply?

One representative of the city can submit a proposal (city department, public or semi-public utilities companies, public agencies, coordinating authorities, and other public bodies directly linked to the city).

Please fill in the application form (downloadable documents) for becoming a Host City or a Visitor City and submit it on the EU Survey Application Platform. More details and information on the general eligibility, reimbursement and methodology can be found in the terms of reference (Site Visits).
