Attractive and Participative Cities, Axis 6

Priority Axis 6 intends to implement the European Urban Agenda giving central role to the Emilia-Romagna cities. Activities also include enhancement of cultural heritage and providing ideal environment for encouraging citizens participation through the use of ICTs.

Priority objectives

Strengthening the identity of urban areas capable of triggering citizens participation processes and enterprises as well as creating new opportunities for employment and inclusion are some of the main goals of this Priority. Ten regional centres are included along with the Municipalities responsible for the implementation of sustainable urban development strategies.

Open spaces for implementing strategies and objectives of the Priority Axis are the Open Laboratories. Staffed with advanced ICT solutions, they are open for collaboration between enterprises, citizenship, the third sector, universities and research centres, public administration and all the actors with significant role in the urban transformation.

It is based on two objectives:

  • to increase citizens’ participation in their cities growth through the use of ICT tools;
  • to enhance cultural attractions and cities' cultural identity.

This priority axis has been allocated €9.6 million up to December 31, 2020. In order to support the regional healthcare system in tackling the Covid-19 pandemic emergency, some  projects were moved for funding under the National Development and Cohesion Fund.
