URBACT networks are approved through competitive calls for proposals. For 2014-2020, different calls for proposals for the 3 types of networks will be launched. 

Transnational exchange and learning networks are one of the core strands of activities of the URBACT programme. They aim at supporting European cities with the design and implementation of sustainable integrated urban policies. Depending on their local situation and needs, cities may join URBACT by taking part in 3 different types of networks:

  • Action-planning Networks: supporting cities in addressing a policy challenge by producing an integrated action-plan
  • Implementation Networks: supporting cities with the delivery of an existing integrated urban strategy/ action-plan
  • Transfer Networks: supporting cities in adapting and re-using a good practice to enhance their urban policies
