Growing urban regions in the West and South Figure: City regions future population dynamics 2025 relative change of population since 2001 (Data: PLUREL project, IIASA, Univ. Edinburgh, AIT) Figure: City regions future population dynamics 2025 relative change of population since 2001 (vertical axe) against city size ( horizontal axe - population numbers as log-scale). (Data: PLUREL project, IIASA, AIT)

4 Demography: The Share of elderly (60+) increases throughout Europe Figure: City regions share of the 60+ age group in 2001 and 2025 (Scenario A1). (vertical axis for city size, horizontal axis for population numbers on a log scale. (Data: PLUREL Project, EUROSTAT, IIASA, AIT)

5 Economic Development: The GDP per capita shows a distinct east-west and south-north upward gradient Figure: City regions GDP per capita (vertical axe) against city size (horizontal axe, log-scale) and 2025, Scenario A1), estimated trend lines for the sub-groups Eastern-Continental, Mediterranean, North-western (Data: PLUREL project, EUROSTAT, Boitier et al., AIT)

6 Artificial Surface: Increase of the built-up area is not strictly connected to economic growth Figure: City regions artificial surface area recent past (2001) and 2025 scenario A1; area in km². (Data: PLUREL Project, IIASA, University of Edinburgh, AIT

8 Sustainability a top priority again!? Latest policy papers demonstrate that sustainability is again high on the international and EU agenda: UN-HABITAT The European Urban Agenda Efforts so far have not resulted in sustainable pathways Strengthen sustainability efforts through Member States cooperation JPI Urban Europe: transition towards urban sustainability

9 Achieving urban sustainability Urban Nexus Sustainable development is often characterised as a wicked problem Super-wicked because issues and challenges are fluid approaches and concepts have to reviewed and adapted regularly a transition is needed from a current (technocratic) policy process to a broader societal dialogue The implementation gap between science, policy and societal needs need to be addressed and closed. The implementation of new policies and solutions is not so much an issue of a lack of funding but due to a high fragmentation and elements that work contradictory because of sectoral competition Advantage of the multiple pathways to sustainable development need to be taken and a shift from dialogue to action is demanded

10 Joint Programming Initiative Urban Europe is a Member States initiative with the ambition to strengthen and enhance research and innovation in the urban context. strives to establish a large scale, long term, international research and development programme dedicated to urban development. follows a holistic approach to create attractive, sustainable, liveable and economically viable urban areas. aims at coordinating and aligning national research programmes. 14 European Countries decided to pool resources to create the JPI Urban Europe to strengthen research and innovation in the area of urbanisation

11 JPI Urban Europe ambition Transnational, mission-oriented, forward-looking R&I initiative on sustainable urban development Providing evidence for new urban policies and strategies and by that enhancing cities capacities for transition Addressing urban development and sustainability in its complexity and generating radical new knowledge and concepts to tackle the urban challenges (cross-sectoral, inter-disciplinary) Teaming up with cities and urban stakeholders of all kinds to raise the impact of our research and support the exploitation of technological and social innovation (trans-disciplinary, societal impact) Establishing JPI Urban Europe as the European hub for urban research globally (international outreach & cooperation)

12 Principles of JPI Urban Europe anticipating European urban characteristics and finding innovative solutions to urban challenges. provide input for evidence based policies. utilize new technologies and investigate new governance concepts. bringing forward radical interdisciplinarity as needed to address research topics. fostering transdisciplinary research: Collaboration between academia and non-academic partners. fostering holistic Urban Research.

13 Thematic pillars, such as Shrinkage & Growth Welfare & Finance CC, Resilience & Governance Urban Governance Research framework: Transition towards sustainability Instruments for implementation Instruments & programme management, open data & urban database, evaluation, dissemination & valorisation, etc. Methodical innovation and sustainability pathways Understanding the complexity of sustainability Targets, indicators and monitoring for urban sustainability Urban data, big data & data management Transition processes & urban development pathways Decision Support Tools
