The Urban Challenge Programme has brought together academic institutions, municipalities, and corporations to address urgent challenges and sustainability issues across urban settings. The Programme has been supported by the Erasmus+ Programme for Knowledge Alliances. As an interdisciplinary, cross-institutional, cross-cultural higher education programme, the Urban Challenge Programme has facilitated the exchange of knowledge, experience, and ideas for urban sustainability across cities and countries.
Greencities is the meeting point of all the agents involved in Smart Cities construction. It is the forum to talk about future cities, and it is an initiative shared among institutions, municipalities, businesses and professionals focused on the projection of sustainable and smart cities.
