A research project of the Driving Urban Transition Partnership

The Driving Urban Transitions (DUT) Partnership builds upon and steps up the ambition and efforts of JPI Urban Europe. With its more than 60 partners from 28 countries, it does not only facilitate the cooperation across countries but creates a platform for connecting and aligning European and national strategies and activities. It aims for significant contribution to the EU Mission on Climate Neutral Cities, the European Green Deal, and the Urban Agenda for the EU by developing and implementing a transformative research and innovation (R&I) programme. Comprehensive programme management measures are enhancing the impact of DUT activities and projects and build capacities to address the urban related anthropogenic crises and challenges.
