The main aim of the UIA Initiative is therefore to provide urban authorities across Europe with space and resources to test bold and unproven ideas addressing interconnected challenges and experiment how these respond to the complexity of real life. Projects to be supported shall be innovative, of good quality, designed and implemented with the involvement of key stakeholders, result oriented and transferable.
Priorities and funded actions:
In terms of support to ERDF Thematic Objectives and Investment Priorities, the overall project needs to be viewed as supportive of the thematic objectives and investment priorities for ERDF. However UIA projects contributing to Thematic Objectives 8-10 (i.e. those that are more social oriented) will be able to be supported provided that:
– The knowledge generated by the overall project can be viewed as supportive of the thematic objectives and investment priorities for ERDF;
– The project is not overwhelmingly focused on European Social Fund (ESF) type of activity.
– Integration of migrants and refugees;
– Circular economy;
– Sustainable urban mobility.
