The SEiSMiC project tackles Europe's biggest urban challenges by improving research and helping citizens get more out of it. SEiSMiC is a mutual learning action plan - with city residents on one side, urban researchers on the other, and a shared goal of healthy, vibrant, inclusive cities at its heart.
The second SEiSMiC factsheet focuses on the theme of new urban governance, the topic of the project’s first thematic national workshops. Each of SEiSMiC’s national networks held their own events, and discussions addressed different challenges, expectations and hopes as societies strive for new, more socially innovative forms of urban governance. This factsheet describes ongoing activities under this headline in Austria, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Italy and Sweden.
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.
