Urban Innovation Unit
The Cluj-Napoca Urban Innovation Unit is a research and development programme, bringing together ideas, knowledge and resources from the civil society, the academic sector, the cultural sector, the business sector and the public administration to propose alternative solutions to the city’s strategic challenges.
Developed in partnership with the Centre for Innovation and Civic Imagination of the Municipality of Cluj-Napoca, the Urban Innovation Unit is focused on R&D projects in urban mobility, future of work and urban resilience.
In 2022, the Urban Innovation Unit will be fully transferred to the Cluj-Napoca City Hall.
