Launch of URBAN-EU-CHINA, the EU-China Innovation Platform on Sustainable Urbanisation

Within the framework of the existing cooperation arrangements between the EU and China, a new H2020 project, i.e. URBAN-EU-CHINA with a consortium of 12 European and Chinese partners will soon be launched. The project will develop an evidence-driven, bottom-up approach to complement the existing top-down strategic approach to cooperation in sustainable urbanisation.

The kick-off of the platform will take place from 19 to 21 March 2017 in the Chinese city of Putian, at the occasion of the 2017 EU-China Forum on Sustainable Urban Development. The partnership will then be officially launched at the occasion of a ceremony hosted in Brussels at the end of March.
