European Commission Publishes a Booklet on Supported Projects for Innovating Cities

The European Commission has published the booklet “Investing in European success: Innovating Cities in Europe and Worldwide”, showcasing 23 successful EU-funded projects on urban innovation. The featured projects include two JPI Urban Europe calls, Sustainable Urbanisation Global Initiative (SUGI)/Food-Water-Energy (FWE) Nexus and ERA-NET Cofund Smart Urban Futures (ENSUF), which have been recognized by the European Commission as important initiatives for innovating cities in Europe and worldwide. Four projects funded within these calls are implemented by Slovenian researchers. Along with the European Commission, national funders assure a significant part of funding in the SUGI and ENSUF funded projects. Slovenian research teams are supported by ARRS co-funding.
