The SEiSMiC project helps tackle Europe's biggest urban problems by engaging citizens, identifying social innovation needs, and contributing to future urban policies and research strategies. It builds diverse networks of urban stakeholders to propose effective, widely agreed solutions. It then engages the public in creative ways, so that research learns from citizens, and citizens learn from research. This brochure provides an introduction to the project, outlines its aims and activities, and describes its context in the Joint Programming Initiative (JPI) Urban Europe.
The three-year project supports and adds a social dimension to JPI Urban Europe. It is funded by the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme for research, technological development and demonstration, and is implemented with the participation of the REC’s Smart Cities and Mobility Topic Area.
