EUKN Expert Pool

The European Urban Knowledge Network (EUKN) collaborates with a professional community of experts specialised in multiple urban-related themes. In light of strategic research activities for EU presidencies or within the context of the Urban Agenda for the EU, the EUKN is continuously interested in widening its expert base. The role of the experts may cover research activities, the preparation of policy briefs, and moderation of events and panel discussions. Furthermore, experts can engage in Policy Labs organised for the EUKN’s members. All activities are be regulated by a task-specific contract.

The aim of the EUKN Expert Pool is to generate and to deepen knowledge about urban policy practice responding to the multi-faceted challenges faced by actors at different levels of government, and particularly by cities. In this way, the professional community contributes to the identification and creation of successful strategies and policies addressing modern-day urban challenges.
