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 theme of the third SEiSMiC takeaway is the project's new view on public space. The factsheet explores the role of public spaces in social interactions, the building of relationships, the sharing of infrastructure and opportunities for mutual learning. It describes a variety of approaches to the use of public space that have been tried out by the SEiSMiC national networks.
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.
