Leading city networks and research organisations team up to accelerate the transition to net-zero emissions by 2030.


The NetZeroCities project is started on October 1st as part of the Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme in support of the European Union’s Green Deal and other EU policies and directives.
This four-year project will support Europe and in particular European cities to drastically cut down greenhouse gas emissions through climate action to achieve a 55% cut in emissions by 2030.

The project will help all European cities by providing them all with the support and solutions they will need to achieve their net-zero goal in a socially- inclusive way overcoming the current structural, institutional and cultural barriers they daily face in order to achieve "climate neutrality".

NetZeroCities recognises the need for cities to develop specific strategies, tailored to suit local and regional contexts and will support them by developing and promoting new and existing tools, resources, and expertise into a one-stop-shop platform that will be accessible to all cities through an online portal. In addition, the project will support up to 30 pilot cities to help drive rapid learning about how to achieve climate neutrality at the city scale.

The Design Department of Politecnico di Milano, together with more than thirty international partners from academia, associations and industry, coordinated by EIT Climate-KIC, will provide its expertise and knowledge to ensure the right support to European cities in achieving climate neutrality.
