Three possible precursors for JEDI

As part of the research strategy that we outlined in 2021, we are thinking to create a proposal (for now to Horizon) called JEDI, for Justice, the Environment, Democracy and Inclusion. We want to investigate how environmental policies might combine “intersectionally” with each other and with other policies to impact inequalities.

As we look for the “right” call, it has been suggested that we look into TRANSFORMATIONS. I had a look at what went on doing Horizon 2020, with only partial success. It looks like TRANSFORMATIONS did, indeed start looking into inequalities, but towards the end of the framework programme it had picked up a specifical interest in culture and heritage.

Anyway, I have found three projects that could be precursors for JEDI:

  1. TECHNEQUALITY, coordinated by U Maastricht. Focused on technological innovation.
  2. UPLIFT, coordinated by the Metropolitan Research Institute in Budapest. Focused on cities and with a participatory flavour.
  3. URBANA, coordinated by ICLEI. Actually a CSA, again with an urban focus.

if we can link this to climate finance then there is possibility to bring in some good people?

Ok I had a chat with @OmaMorkie about this and we are on board to work on this together wth you @alberto. We need to finish our pitch and then we can organise a call to meet and discuss further.
