The New Leipzig Charter and JRC's Urban Activities - EUKN Webinar for the JRC
The EUKN EGTC is organising a webinar on 26 November 2020 (14:30-16:00 CET) in cooperation with the JRC Territorial Development (JRC.B.3) Unit to discuss the findings from the EUKN study ‘The New Leipzig Charter and the JRC’s Urban Activities’. The results of the study will be presented and discussed within the broader context of the urban science for policy interface post-2020.
This EUKN study investigates the role that the JRC, the Commission’s science and knowledge service, can play in supporting urban policymaking within the framework for sustainable urban development proposed by the New Leipzig Charter (NLC) for the next ten years to come. By analysing how the core ‘urban’ activities of the JRC.B.3 align with the NLC framework, the study reflects on how this role could be further strengthened beyond 2020. The reflection is then expanded to consider both gaps and opportunities within the wider EU urban science-policy interface, considering the ongoing development of urban matters in the EU and the urban dimension of its policies.
