Urban Challenge Programme


Engage across borders and academic disciplines. Tackle the world's toughest urban challenges.

From urban mobility to carbon emissions, today’s global challenges demand our attention. The Urban Challenge Programme is where academic institutions, municipalities, and corporations converge and cooperate to address urgent challenges and sustainability issues across urban settings.

The Urban Challenge Programme is supported by the Erasmus+ Programme for Knowledge Alliances. As an interdisciplinary, cross-institutional, cross-cultural higher education programme, the Urban Challenge Programme facilitates the exchange of knowledge, experience, and ideas for urban sustainability across cities and countries. Courses are offered to graduate students enrolled at one of the six partnering universities. Each course is structured as a 7.5 ECTS accredited, project-based intensive and two-four week comparative exchange course in Copenhagen and one of our five partner cities. All students must apply through their home university.

As we approach our third and final year we have had so far a total of 351 students working on cases that varied from optimization of local resources, developing whole new concepts to improve and transform areas and local businesses. We have had a total of 1.531,82 teaching days and over 11.000 teaching hours.

We are now getting ready for our Urban Challenge Conference, taking place in Copenhagen on April 25th, 2019.
