The European Commission is organising a Stakeholder Partnership event on 20 October 2015 to facilitate networking, information exchange and cross-border partnerships of organisations interested in addressing urban challenges through innovating with nature or by making innovative use of cultural heritage assets for regenerating cities.

Funding calls are expected in the 2016/17 Horizon 2020 work programme for large-scale demonstration projects using cities as living-labs for nature-based solutions to societal challenges, and cultural heritage as a driver for sustainable development. These calls are a move away from basic and applied research to a new style of innovation action based on a systemic approach to problem solving. They aim to promote a resource efficient, greener and competitive economy. The calls expect to engage stakeholders in cross-sectorial partnerships and inter-disciplinary activities, to co-design, co-develop and co-implement innovative solutions, and to test them in real-world conditions through demonstration activities.
