Short call abstract: 

In answer to the global urbanisation challenge, NSFC and JPI Urban Europe have agreed to a long-term cooperation under the strategic theme Sustainable Urbanisation in the Context of Economic Transformation and Climate Change. The pilot call is a joint initiative of nine European funding agencies participating in JPI Urban Europe and NSFC in China.

In the call the following three thematic themes will be addressed:

a) Reduce the adverse environmental impact of cities, paying special attention to the quality of air, water and soil, and municipal and other waste management;
b) Access to safe, affordable, and sustainable housing, transportation and basic services; and

  2. Transformation of energy systems and strengthen urban circular economies;
  3. Urban public administration and services innovation; and
  4. Urban data management

The call will invite researchers from Chinese and European universities, research institutes, research and technology organisations (including municipal research institutes), cities and city planning departments, as well as European companies.
