New Urban Space

November 2015 | Print | Paper

The second edition of the SEiSMiC policy watch papers describes urban trends at the global, European and local levels. At the global level, this edition covers the Sustainable Development Summit held in September 2015 in New York; and the global Maker Movement. At European level, it discusses the EU’s Urban Agenda, the release of the Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda from JPI Urban Europe, and developments in the realm of “smart cities”. It concludes with a rundown of the latest SEiSMiC project activity on new urban governance and new urban space.

The SEiSMiC 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.
