The doors are open for you to apply for the International Urban and Regional Cooperation programme, an opportunity for your city or region and local stakeholders to pair up with cities in Asia, Australasia and Latin and North America to exchange on sustainability and innovation, and to create lasting ties.
As the second phase of the International Urban Cooperation programme (IUC) (2016-2020), IURC will lead and develop decentralised international urban and regional cooperation in sustainable urban development and innovation in key partner countries and regions in line with the external dimension of Europe 2020.
Cities and regions across the EU will be able to cooperate with over 300 local and sub-national governments and their stakeholders (business, academia, civil society) in an international network encompassing the Americas (Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Mexico, Peru and the United States), Asia (China, India, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Republic of Korea, Thailand and Vietnam) and the Pacific (Australia and New Zealand).
Cities can apply here.
Regions can apply here.
