The JPI funded project, PlaceCity had the overarching goal of establishing a multidisciplinary and transsectorial European Placemaking Network with the capacity to offer support and resources to local and national placemaking initiatives across Europe.
The consortium aimed to advance placemaking as a new approach to creating better cities together by gathering proven placemaking tools, testing them in real life case studies and make them readily available to every city in Europe. Research and implementation partners were the cities of Oslo and Vienna, developing a knowledge platform together with other consortium partners.
