Some Member cities of the EUniverCites network are also involved in the selected transfer projects.
Civic eState (ex-CommUnities):
Cities involved: Naples (IT), Gdansk (PL), Barcelona (ES), Amsterdam (NL), Ghent (BE), Iasi (RO), Presov (SK)
The network’s purpose is to transfer Naples’ Good Practice “Lost & Found”. The network aims at guaranteeing the collective enjoyment as well as collective management of urban essential facilities conceived as urban commons. This public-community governance approach will secure fair and open access to commons as well as their sustainability and preservation for the benefit of future generations.
Cities involved:Lisbon (PT), Bari (IT), Aalborg (DK), Sofia (BG), Ostrava (CZ), Lublin (PL), Den Haag (NL), Lille Metropole (FR)
Lisbon Local Development Strategy for areas of Priority Intervention provides the city a range of integrated tools to tackle urban poverty and empower local communities. The strategy is based on a co-governance and bottom-up participatory perspective, ensuring a horizontal and collaborative local approach, to mitigate social, economic, environmental and urban exclusion, resulting in a smart and effective toolbox to implement a sustainable urban living and enhance social and territorial cohesion.
Welcoming International Talent (ex-Movement)
Cities involved: Groningen (NL), Zlin Municipal Authority (CZ), Magdeburg (DE), Parma (IT), Bielsko-Biala (PL), Leuven (BE), EDC Debrecen (HU)
Higher education and the knowledge economy have led to a global competition for talent. Whereas the main European cities attract both students and skilled-workers because of their scale and fame, medium-sized cities, like Groningen, need a policy to attract talent and to keep them economically active. In this Network, the Good Practice of Groningen, a welcoming policy for International Students and skilled workers, will be transferred to other EU cities.
