The Commission has announced the winning cities of the 3rd call for projects under the Urban Innovative Actions. €92 million from the European Regional Development Fund will finance innovative solutions to urban challenges such as air quality, climate change, housing, and jobs and skills for the local economy. The Commission also

launches the 4th call under the Urban Innovative Actions. €100 million is now available to cities to finance innovative projects to protect and reduce the vulnerability of public spaces, as announced in the 2017 Action Plan under the European Agenda on Security. The call will also finance digital, environmental and inclusion projects. Commissioner for Regional policy Corina Creţu said: "With these calls for projects, we are turning EU cities into real labs to test solutions that have the potential to improve quality of life in all the world's cities. And because urban security and the safety of public spaces has become a crucial concern for citizens, after we have suffered tragic terrorist attacks in recent years, now we are supporting cities in their efforts to protect their inhabitants.”
