Transnational Call for Proposals for Urban Transformation Capacities

Transnational Call for Proposals for Urban Transformation Capacities


Deadline: 15-Apr-21

In the framework of the ERA-NET “Urban transformation capacities”, Agence Nationale De La Recherche (ANR) is launching, in collaboration with 15 other partners from 13 European countries, a call for proposals, co-financed by the European Commission, to invite researchers, urban government authorities, – including cities and municipalities, – businesses, civil society and other stakeholders to build transnational consortia to create innovation and research projects that enable and support capacity building for urban transformations.

This call welcomes a broad range of research and innovation projects that will help to improve the transformative capacities of cities. Projects should explore transformation mechanisms and capacity building for transformation, through increasing knowledge and understanding of these processes, including building on previous practical experiences and existing knowledge.

This call aims to mobilise a very broad range of scientific disciplines, especially in interdisciplinary or transdisciplinary projects or adopting holistic approaches. Relevant disciplines include but are not limited to for example natural sciences (biology, physics, geology and chemistry), social sciences (economics, geography, political science, law, conflict resolution, psychology, sociology, history, cultural studies…), engineering and computer sciences, and applied fields such as transportation planning, logistics, traffic engineering, urban and spatial planning and policy development, architecture, design, as well as artistic and creative disciplines.

Funding Information

The total available budget for this call is approximately EUR 18.4 million, including support from the European Commission through the Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under Grant Agreement No. 101003758. Based on this budget, the ENUTC funding agencies expect to fund approximately 10-14 proposals in the co-funded call, with an average funding of EUR 1 – 2 million.
In this call, urban transformation capacities are related to three main topics, which address a wide variety of urban challenges. Because of the intricacy of issues, the three call topics overlap and there are also crosscutting concerns (use of data, tools for decision-makers, etc.). Each challenge considers these transverse issues from a specific perspective. A proposal must address at least one call topic but may be related to several call topics if it considers a crosscutting subject or an issue that is at the frontier of several topics.

Urban circular economies;
Community-based developments and urban innovation ecosystems;
Robust and resilient urban infrastructure and built environment.
