EU Urban Agenda: FIEC applies for urban mobility partnership
On 12th January, 4 partnerships were launched in the framework of the EU Urban Agenda. They will deal with: the circular economy, led by the city of Oslo (NO); digital transition, led by Estonia and the cities of Oulu (FI) and Sofia (BG); jobs and skills, led by Romania and the cities of Jelgava (LV) and Rotterdam (NL); urban mobility, led by the Czech Republic and the city of Karlsruhe (DE).
These partnerships aim to facilitate cooperation on 12 issues at different administrative and political levels within the EU. They are scheduled to last 2 to 3 years and will pursue a number of goals: improving EU legislation taking account of the needs of cities, improving access to European financial instruments and funding, enhancing the sharing of best practice between cities.
FIEC is applying for participation in the partnership on urban mobility.
NB: 4 partnerships were already put in place in 2016 on air quality, housing, refugees and migrants and urban poverty.
