ENTER.HUB promotes the role of railway hubs/multimodal interfaces of regional relevance in medium cities as engines for integrated urban development and economic, social and cultural regeneration.

ENTER.HUB, aims at developing innovative planning tools enhancing urban planning and city policies in order to reach a sustainable urban and territorial development thanks to the strengthening and widening of the railway systems, particular by exploiting the economic, cultural and social inducts of railway hubs of regional relevance.
The network of local actors will redefine territorial/functional systems around these hubs, by exploiting these “agglomerates of flows” to strengthen connectivity at a local/ regional/ EU level for cities to become more competitive, to attract population and business in the face of the economic crisis.

Integrated action plans

An Integrated Action Plan (IAP) is a policy instrument that is produced by Action Planning networks within a period of 12 - 14 months after the beginning of their activities. The aim of the IAP is to respond in a concrete way to a urban challenge, which is common to all involved cities. Each partner city develops its own IAP, so all plans are unique in terms of local circumstances, territorial coverage and, most of all, the context in which this tool is proposed to be implemented. The creation and validation of this instrument relies in a collective undertaking, designed to strengthen commitment and to increase the prospect of sustainable delivery. In this sense, every partner city must establish a URBACT Local Group (ULG), in order to gather implicated stakeholders to co-create and participate in this process.Thus, the IAP reflect and integrate all ULG members' knowledge and learning from transnational exchange.
