The URBACT Programme provides each approved network with a specific financial envelope for the appointment of URBACT experts. The expert role is to support beneficiaries in designing and implementing transnational learning activities, to foster the local level uptake of the learning developed in transnational activities, and more generally to help deliver expected results.
Validated Experts compose URBACT's III pool of expertise. URBACT Experts are expected to provide partners with a package of services including the 3 following types of expertise:
- Expertise for the design and delivery of transnational exchange and learning activities
- Thematic Expertise on content related to the urban policy challenges addressed by URBACT
- Expertise to support city partners and other stakeholders in designing and delivering integrated and participative policies
The expertise provided by the Programme is available for the approved ongoing Networks as follows:
- A Lead Expert will be appointed to assist the partnership over the entire duration of the network with both methods and tools for exchange and learning activities and thematic expertise.
