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.
