Urban Nexus

Documentation Kick Off Meeting // The Sustainable Urbanisation Global Initiative (SUGI)

Researchers and project partners from the 15 projects funded in the JPI Urban Europe and Belmont Forum joint call “Sustainable urbanization global initiatives – food water energy nexus” met in London for a two days’ kick-off meeting in the beginning of June.

The Kick Off Meeting was organized with the aim to give the projects valuable information and to encourage collaboration across projects from the start. It was held to share expectations for the coming three years, comparing different approaches to food-water-energy nexus in urban transitioning, and identifying topics for further collaboration. Hassan Virji, Chair of the SUGI Expert Committee on Innovation and Impact Delivery, explained how the monitoring activities will support projects to succeed.
