Launching the implementation of EU Missions and presentation of the European Commission’s call for expression of interest for the 100 Climate-Neutral and Smart Cities Mission
The EU missions´ implementation plans announced by the European Commission on 29 September 2021 are a new and innovative way to work together and improve the lives of people in Europe and beyond. EU missions aim to tackle big challenges in health, climate and the environment, and to achieve ambitious and inspiring goals in these areas by 2030. Their implementation requires a collective eort cutting across the boundaries of policies, programmes and dierent levels of governance. They aim to mobilise and activate public and private actors, such as EU Member States, regional and local authorities, research institutes, entrepreneurs and investors to create real and lasting impact. EU Missions will engage with citizens to boost societal uptake of new solutions and approaches.
The European Comittee of the Regions (CoR) COTER commission (Commission for
Territorial Cohesion Policy and EU Budget) is closely associated to the implementation of the missions across Europe and is oering this conference to interested CoR members and other stakeholders. The aim of the conference is to launch the implementation of EU Missions with cities and regions and to discuss in more detail the objectives and next steps of the Climate-Neutral and Smart Cities mission, including the upcoming call for expression of interest.
