IPR Prague, together with the City Hall of Prague, will be co-hosting the next UNaLaB Project Consortium Meeting and their General Assembly at the end of May 2019, expecting up to 70 members of the UNaLab Consortium to participate.
UNaLab (Urban Nature Labs) is a project funded by the European Commission under the Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme. The UNaLab consortium comprises 28 partners from 10 cities across Europe and beyond, including municipalities, research institutes, businesses and industry representatives. The UNaLab partner cities are committed to addressing the challenges that today’s cities are facing today by focusing on climate and water related issues, within an innovative and citizen-driven paradigm.
With three demonstration cities, seven replication cities and several observers, the UNaLab project aims to develop smarter, more inclusive, more resilient and increasingly sustainable societies through innovative nature-based solutions (NBS). These topics are strongly correlating with Triangulum project’s targets. That is the reason why not only Triangulum Follower City Prague but also our Lighthouse Cities Eindhoven and Stavanger are part of the UNaLaB project: Eindhoven as a Front Runner City (similar to our Lighthouse City concept) and Stavanger as a Follower City are working on the basis of the experience they have gained during the course of Triangulum Project. Prague is acting as an Observer City in the project, represented by IPR Prague, in collaboration with the Capital City of Prague. The project was launched in June 2017 and will run until May 2022.
This project has received funding from the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme under Grant Agreement No. 730052 Topic: SCC-2-2016-2017: Smart Cities and Communities Nature based solutions.
