The event was meant to show how EU-funded Research and Innovation projects and actions are driving Sustainable Urban Development to address major urban challenges. The initiative was the occasion to share findings as well as opportunities based on the highlights of the draft High-Level Expert Group on Innovating Cities, informing the audience on the existing EU funding instruments to support cities in their transition towards sustainability.
CLIC was involved in the session titled “EU-funded R&I for and with cities”. Suzana Belosevic, representative of the City of Rijeka CLIC partner, reported on the project case studies in Rijeka and Salerno.
