222 applications received from 23 Member States

The fifth UIA Call for Proposals generated a strong interest from all over the European Union, with 222 applications from 23 EU Member States.
The core audience (48%) remains cities between 50.000 and 250.000 inhabitants, which is in line with the average European urban fabric. However, only 18% of the applying urban authorities are cities with less than 50 000 inhabitants (compared to 26% in the previous Call) - and have therefore opted for a joint bid with other municipalities - whereas 34% of the applicants are large cities above 250.000 inhabitants (compared to 21% in the previous call).
