UIA is looking for experts in Just Transitions-related topics, with a focus on education, labour markets and skills; participation and collaboration schemes; and access to public services to ensure that no urban resident is left behind the carbon-neutral transition.

UIA is recruiting experts to lead and support a capitalisation activity on innovation for “just urban transitions”. 

The Capitalisation activity will collect and showcase empirical evidence and stories from several cities, and fosters exchange of experience and mutual learning on the role of cities in just transition. It will offer insights on the what’s, the why’s, and the how’s cities have opted for specific solutions; and will shed light on the common cross-cutting issues the cities face in regard to the deployment of their solutions.

The capitalisation activity will be structured with 3 main sub-activities that will last at least 8 months each:

  1. Skills for a green future
  2. Democratic transition for all
  3. Make the city affordable for all


The role of the experts will be to lead a team of experts (for lead expert profiles) and to analyze and conduct desk research, produce reports and moderate events and meetings (ad-hoc experts profile).

The Call will remain open until 21 May 2021. 

Interested candidates are invited to read carefully the Terms of Reference for this call and to fill in the online application available at the following link: https://ec.europa.eu/eusurvey/runner/UIAcallexperts2021
