Short Call Abstract:

With this first of a series of calls on the topic of Positive Energy Districts and Neighbourhoods (PED/PEN), JPI Urban Europe invites transdisciplinary and cross-sectoral communities of researchers and practitioners to create projects with focus on:

  • Providing transnational alignment, comparison and exchange of experiences between ongoing (European) projects in different PED implementation phases
  • Their integration in general urban strategies, stakeholder involvement strategies and the role of geographical/climatic conditions.

The results from projects granted in this call should help to facilitate knowledge transfer and learning from different European contexts, cities and countries to create greater engagement and understanding in PED implementation processes.
