Building knowledge on Urban Migration

The Joint Programming Initiative Urban Europe invites transdisciplinary and cross-sectoral communities of researchers and practitioners to create projects that align, synthesise or consolidate already existing knowledge on urban migration across disciplines on national and local levels. The focus of this call is the ways that migration affects and is affected by the life and functioning of cities.  The JPI aims for a broad scrutiny of urban migration, and proposals submitted to this call should focus on one, many or a mix of migration types, categorized by political boundaries, movement patterns, or  by taking a decision-making approach. The project proposal should at least address one of the following topics:

  • Topic 1: Socio-spatial integration and citizen involvement;
  • Topic 2: Urban governance of housing issues;
  • Topic 3: Enhancing cities’ administrative capacities and supporting evidence-based integration policies (managing migration).

Countries that participate in this call are: Austria, Germany, Latvia, Sweden and the United Kingdom. Partners from third countries are welcome in consortium but need funding from other sources. The pre-proposal deadline is March 26th 2020, full proposal deadline is September 4th 2020.
