    URBACT is a European Territorial Cooperation programme which is co-funded by the European Regional Development Fund. It aims to enable cities to work together to develop integrated solutions to common urban challenges by networking, learning from one another’s experiences, drawing lessons and identifying good practices to improve urban policies across the 27 Member States, Norway and Switzerland. 

    URBACT has four main objectives:

    1. Capacity for Policy Delivery: improve the capacity of cities to manage sustainable urban policies and practices in an integrated and participative way

    2. Policy Design: improve the design of sustainable strategies and action plans in cities

    3. Policy Implementation: improve the implementation of integrated and sustainable urban strategies and action plans in cities

    4. Building and Sharing Knowledge: ensure that practitioners and decision makers at all levels have increased access to knowledge and share know-how on all aspects of sustainable urban development to improve urban development policies

    The Eastern & Midland Regional Assembly is the National Contact Point for URBACT.

    The Southern Regional Assembly is the designated First Level Control for payment claims from partners in the S&E region.
