UIA – Objectives Urban Innovative Actions (UIA) is an Initiative of the European Union that provides urban areas throughout Europe with resources to test new and unproven solutions to address urban challenges. Key elements are: An Eligible Applicant is an urban authority of more than 50.000 inhabitants, or a grouping of urban authorities with a total population of a least 50.000 inhabitants, located in one of the EU Member States. However, given the complexity of the urban challenges, urban authorities can’t act alone. In order to design and implement effective and innovative solutions, they need to involve all the key stakeholders that can bring expertise and knowledge on the specific policy issue to be addressed. These include agencies, organizations, private sector, research institutions, NGOs. UIA co-finances 80% of project’s activities and can provide with up to EUR 5 million to projects thatare:Innovative (project that has never been implemented anywhere else in Europe

The objective of the Urban Manufacturing Project is to ensure that collaborative makerspaces thrive.  We achieve this through identifying best practice, testing policy approaches and supporting our cities/regions in creating receptive conditions. Our hope is that we will demonstrate the impact that cooperative facilities can have on innovation and establish a European network of advocates.  WHAT ARE COLLABORATIVE MAKERSPACES?  Collaborative makerspaces take many forms, but common to all is the idea of producing physical objects through cooperation. This sharing can occur during ideas generation or fabrication and is most profound when different sectors come together.  The benefits of working in this way are numerous and include: new and improved products; an enhanced sense of community; increased mutual knowledge; quicker and more comprehensive solutions; and the tapping of latent potential. This leads to more effective and far-reaching innovation. Examples of collaborative makerspaces include Fab Labs, Open Innovation Centres, Living Labs and Cross-Sector Incubators.  Collaborative makerspaces are typically located within urban environments, so understanding the ecosystem – for example the interdependencies between education, policy makers and manufacturers – is of fundamental importance. Through nourishing these connected elements, cooperative facilities can flourish.  Through our partnership, we are analysing the effect of policies across seven related themes: STEAM Communities Ecosystems Funding to support makerspaces Results of investment in makerspaces Routes to market Enterprise We develop our understanding through a process of knowledge sharing.

The diversity of cultural heritage assets, whether tangible (museums, buildings, archaeological sites, archives) or intangible (such as cultural itineraries and events) is a cornerstone in European identity and a catalyst for social inclusion. It also plays a specific role in achieving the Europe 2020 strategy goals for a smart, sustainable and inclusive growth, given its relevance not only in culture, but also in social and economic development, cohesion, education, tourism and innovation. However, pressure applied by visitors and residents means that heritage professionals, institutions and stakeholders face growing challenges to keep cultural assets and the territory around them protected, enhanced and, at the same time, accessible to all. SHARE aims at exchanging experiences in cultural heritage policies in urban settings, in order to identify best practices and innovative methods to develop a sustainable and smart approach to its management and use. The project will target ways in which smart cities projects can be effectively improved by including a smart and sustainable agenda for cultural assets in urban centers. The project will review existing policy tools, European policy outlines and best practices and will include specific research to be carried out in each partner’s area. The result of the interregional exchange process, lasting 24 months during Phase 1 of the project, will be conveyed in 6 Action Plans that will indicate ways to successfully transfer of SHARE’s outputs into mainstream policies, with particular reference to 5 ERDF funds. The partners represent a variety of public bodies, agencies and academic centers coming from 7 countries across Europe dealing with cultural heritage and smart cities policies and will commit to effectively share results of the project with local stakeholders groups and the MAs and institutions implementing local policies, and to ensure monitoring of the Action Plans over the 2-year period Phase 2 of the project.

The [email protected] project is aimed at tackling the environmental protection and promotion of the resource efficiency by especially addressing the conservation, preservation and development of natural and cultural heritage. Based on the concepts of urban happiness and livability, the project intends to to realize more healthy places from both the energetic-environmental and socio economical points of view. At the same time, the project wants to give answers to the increasing needs of new and more specific integration of competences in the field of natural, material and immaterial cultural heritage coming from different groups of people including the elderly, the young and and the disable people. In order to reach these aims, a new way to mean and manage territories mainly guided by integration and innovation, is required. The challenge of the project is to change the way to mean and manage the territories, through the integration of material and immaterial resources, different stakeholde
