The International Urban and Regional Cooperation program (IURC) is a European Union (EU) program that promotes decentralized multi-city cooperation in sustainable urban development, building partnerships between EU and non-EU cities on a global scale.
Through networking events, best practice sharing, comparative studies, knowledge exchange and direct contact with city officials, cities will be able to focus their cooperation. IURC enables local governments to implement pilot projects involving research, civil society & business partners.
