Calls and Funding

Over the duration of SUMPs-Up, three calls will be held to select planning authorities to take part in the project's learning activities - the SUMP Learning Programme (SLP).

In total, around 100 local authorities will be chosen. The vast majority will form the Expert Group, who take part in one of five six-month learning programmes. A smaller Leadership Group will participate in activities over two years. The Leadership Group and second Expert Group intake have been selected - click here to see them.


Call closed to join next round of the SUMP Learning Programme

The call for cities to fifth and final SUMP Learning Programmes closed at 18:00 CET on 31 January 2019.


What happens next?

The SUMPs-Up consortium will now conduct an eligibility check and thorough evaluation based on the list of criteria that was published with the call. For reference, the call document can be found here. A minimum of two partners will review each application.

In the near future, SUMPs-Up will inform all applicants via email about the final decision regarding their application, irrespective of whether they have been successful or not.


When is the next call?

All calls for participation in the SLPs have now been launched.

There is still plenty of learning to be done with SUMPs-Up, however! Check out the project's wide variety of e-learning materials here.
