A message about URBACT beneficiaries and experts from the UK.

During URBACT III (from 2014 to 2022), 19 local public authorities from the UK (see list below) will have benefitted from knowledge and project exchanges with other EU cities, international visibility, and capacity-building for civil servants on how to tackle local challenges in a participative way.

Thanks to their involvement in URBACT networks, these authorities will or already have developed integrated action plans to tackle their challenges, from local economic development to digital transition, urban regeneration and environmental causes.

To do so, they have received a total of EUR 2 345 762,84 from the European Regional Development Funds. In the context of Brexit, current UK beneficiaries will continue to receive funding and benefit from URBACT activities until the end of their network (2022).

Whether UK local public authorities will be able to participate in future URBACT calls for networks will be defined by the UK government as part of the final negotiations around Brexit and the Programming Committee for URBACT IV.

In the meantime, UK cities not involved in ongoing networks but interested in benefiting from URBACT knowledge can consult articles, reports, case studies, use tools available on urbact.eu, and take part in open online or physical events.

Experts, consultants and service providers from the UK are eligible to provide their services to URBACT. For more information, interested parties can contact the URBACT Secretariat at communication@urbact.eu
