Would you like to be engaged in the latest developments in Europe and China in sustainable urban innovation? Are you looking for the right mix of technologies, design and human engagement to create an urban environment in which it is easy to live a sustainable life? How do you develop a smart sustainable city in a continent with thousands of years of history?
Then the URBAN-EU-CHINA Innovation Platform on Sustainable Urbanisation is the place for you!
   China’s wide-spread development of smart services and high speed in urbanisation experiments matched with Europe’s long-term experience in liveable, accessible and human-scaled urban design, create the perfect background to develop innovative urban solutions for tomorrow’s green society. 

   The URBAN-EU-CHINA platform aims to identify these opportunities and boost innovative, integrated and efficient urban design, services and technologies, in cooperation with cities, industry, research and policy. We are continuously looking for the best ideas on urban environments in which citizen well-being, quality of public space, environment and energy, health and water, transport and ICT, go hand in hand.

   After a successful Spring start at the EU-China Forum on Sustainable Urban Development in Putian City, and our Launch Event in Brussels, we are now fully engaged in developing cooperation projects between European and Chinese cities, an R&I policy roadmap and Industry Workshops – to name a few. If you want to become involved, come and see us at the EU-China High-Level Forum on Sustainable Urban Development in Chengdu, the CAUPD Conference on Innovation-Driven Urbanisation in Beijing, the Nordic Edge Expo in Stavanger, the European Cities and Regions Week in Brussels, the Smart City Expo in Barcelona, or contact us at coordinator@urbaneuchina.eu
