The EUKN was established in 2004 to address the constant need for knowledge exchange in all relevant areas of urban policy in Europe. Today, the EUKN is the only independent EU Member State driven network in the field of urban policy, research and practice. With strong ties to EU institutions and programmes as well as to other knowledge partners, the EUKN is deeply involved in EU policy-making.
The mission of the EUKN is:
To enhance the effectiveness of urban policies in Europe at all levels;
To support national governments in their role (creation, (re)design, implementation of urban policy approaches and governance) to contribute to the economic, environmental and social success of Europe.
The EUKN thrives to attain this:
By providing high-level expertise in various areas of urban policy in Europe;
By co-shaping urban policy-making in Europe;
By being a trustful partner managing the network;
By practicing a high-quality service to respond to concrete knowledge demand.
