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

    In this 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;
    c) Integrated policies towards inclusion, resource efficiency, mitigation and adaptation to climate change and resilience to disasters.

    The call invites 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.

    The total funding available in this programme is approximately EUR 9,35 million on the European side, across the participating European funding agencies. NSFC will fund the Chinese part of all projects.

    In this webinar, representatives from the joint secretariat will present the call and inform participants about the application process. At the end of the webinar, there will be a dedicated Q&A.
