Deliverables

Powerhouse Demonstration Projects Guidelines

The Powerhouse Demonstration Projects Guidelines will outline guidelines, processes and results of the 2-4 most comprehensive and ambitious joint EU-China Powerhouse Demonstration Projects (PDPs) on sustainable urbanisation among the cities participating in the URBAN-EU-CHINA platform, encompassing network infrastructures and sustainable urbanisation concepts, public-private partnerships enabling cross-sectoral cooperation and co-investment. The Guidelines will encompass assessment criteria and principles for clustering cities, developed in close consultation with the European Commission, the Chinese Ministry of Science and Technology, and Joint Programming Initiative Urban Europe. The Guidelines will also include advice and support on EU and Chinese policies, financial structures, network infrastructures and other conditions to advance and scale up further EU-China demonstration projects. This deliverable is led by UNNC and NTNU.

Cooperation Plans and Guidelines (version 3)

The Cooperation Plans and Guidelines will outline the results of joint activities between sustainable urbanisation projects in European and Chinese cities (including selection criteria), as well as the corresponding process of selecting, facilitating and documenting the matching of 10 European and 10 Chinese cities during year 1, scaled up with an additional 10 cities per continent per year (i.e., 10+10 cities in 2017, 20+20 in 2018, and 30+30 in 2019).

The writing of the alignment papers will be led by FFG and UNNC, with contributions from NTNU. These partners will organise Alignment Workshops for further reflection and dissemination of the proposed strategies and instruments, discuss each draft Alignment Paper in a workshop with committed European and Chinese funding institutions for future EU-China STI cooperation, as well as with the EIP SCC Special Cooperation Group. The Alignment Papers will be matched with the draft Strategic R&I Roadmap to establish common ground and fine-tuned to reflect the specificities of the EU-China cooperation, based on the alignment approaches used by JPI Urban Europe and the European Commission.
