Welcome to the Urban Living Lab Fellowship Programme!

At the heart of the ULLC's mission lies a dedication to facilitating international cooperation projects with the potential to catalyze change in key urban sectors. These projects are not just limited to financial support from entities such as the International Climate Initiative and the European Union; rather, they encompass a broader network of like-minded funders and partners. Our collective goal is clear: to maximize synergies among initiatives, enhance their effectiveness, and accelerate local climate change mitigation efforts while promoting sustainable development.
