The Scalable Cities Action Grant is structured as a service contract. This grant is a financial tool to support the replication of measures already successfully tested in Smart Cities and Community projects through Horizon 2020 SCC01 projects. It is organised through four calls for proposals with four deadlines, covering different topics.
The first call, which opened on 3rd June, seeks to improve and optimise cities’ internal governance structures and support cities in developing innovative financing concepts and mechanisms to engage private investors.
The indicative budget to be awarded in the period 2022 to 2024 is EUR 900 000 to fund around 20 to 30, each with a duration of between 6 and 12 months. Applicants may submit proposals that have higher overall budgets, but the action grant may in no case exceed EUR 50 000 per project.
Cities and related partners (e.g. local energy agencies, construction agencies, civil society organisations, research institutes, NGOs, SMEs) from completed Horizon 2020 SCC01 Lighthouse projects and/or external cities interested in replicating specific actions from those Scalable Cities projects.
Deadline for applications is extended to 31st August 2022. Discover the application process on the Scalable Cities website!
