The Mission on Climate-Neutral and Smart Cities (EU Cities Mission) aims to deliver 100 climate-neutral and smart European cities by 2030, while paving the way for remaining European cities to become climate-neutral by 2050. 

The course will be a Blended Intensive Programme (BIP) and will give participants detailed tools on the different aspects involved, instruments of analysis and design tools to develop ideas and make plans for mitigation and adaptation to climate change in urban areas. Within the BIP framework, two different and complementary education methods are organised: online events (in July 2023) completed through a mobility program in Florence, at the School of Engineering of UNIFI, from 4 to 8 September 2023. The lectures will be followed by a project to develop in a group. The BIP is open to Masters and PhD students.

The participants to the BIP will be asked to adopt a city, among those already selected for the Cities Mission. Each participant or group will collect all data available and background information on the initiatives of the city and will propose their own initiatives or the integration of the existing ones into their project. The proposal can be focused on specific topics, limited areas, localised actions etc.
