News Closed last week, the third and final call for URBACT project brought together over 80 applications, which represents hundreds of European cities. Of the 82 submitted city partnerships, up to 19 will receive EU structural funds to develop new networks on the topic of integrated and sustainable urban development.

Eligible applications are now being analysed by an international panel of experts, a step in the assessment process leading to the URBACT Monitoring Committee's final decision on 23 April 2012. The resulting list of projects approved for an initial six-month "Development phase" will be posted on the URBACT website.

"It's very encouraging to see such a high interest in URBACT from cities across the EU," said Emmanuel Moulin, Director of the URBACT Secretariat.  "Only the best proposals will be selected: the aim is for networks to really improve sustainable and integrated urban development in their partner cities."
In terms of thematic coverage, proposals were well spread over URBACT's three sets of topics: Innovative cities: 42,70% of all proposals receivedSustainable cities: 37, 80% of all proposals receivedInclusive cities: 19,50% of all proposals received
In terms of the geographical coverage of cities submitting proposals as Lead Partner, nearly a quarter are Italian (23%), and 17% are Spanish. Other countries with high numbers of hopeful Lead Partners are the Netherlands, the United Kingdom and Portugal, with an average of 10% of all Lead Partners in submitted proposals. Of the 82 proposals, six were led by cities from the former "New Member States": three by Hungarian cities, two by Romanian cities and one by a Slovenian city.
