HETFA has joined, as an official member, the Urban Europe Research Alliance (UERA).

One of the key initiatives of JPI Urban Europe and currently part of the Driving Urban Transition (DUT) Partnership, UERA is bringing together research performing organisations and aims to strengthen, expand and optimise coordination activities and research planning in Europe in the field of urban research and innovation capabilities. Currently UERA brings together 58 European research organisations from 20 different countries. This growing community of researchers, professors, and PhD students organises scientific events and seeks to prepare the ground for joint, interdisciplinary research projects addressing the needs of cities.

On 4-5 April 2022, representatives from HETFA had the pleasure to join online the UERA General Assembly that was held in France at the Paris School of Urban Planning. During the event Gergely Fazekas, Director of HETFA’s Division for Urban and Regional Development delivered a presentation about HETFA’s portfolio to the UERA community and gained important insights into UERA’s future activities.

We look forward to a fruitful collaboration with UERA members and to contributing to a shared vision on European urban research.
