What is a Peer Review?

A Peer Review is a capacity building activity offered by EUI to support European cities to improve the design and implementation of their Sustainable Urban Development (SUD) strategies, through a process of benchmarking and peer learning. Each Peer Review involves one ‘city under review’ , working with individuals from four to six cities acting as ‘peer reviewers’ to address a thematic challenge in developing, implementing or monitoring an effective SUD strategy.

Who can benefit from a Peer Review?

Cities under review are European cities receiving ERDF support for the design and implementation of their SUD strategy under article 11 of the ERDF Regulation (EU) 2021/1058. They are known as Article 11 cities and the only authorities eligible for this role.

You can check if your city is an 'article 11' one at this link.

Peer reviewers are individuals working for a European city designing and implementing a SUD strategy. They may come from any urban authority, although the participation of peer reviewers working for article 11 cities is particularly welcomed.

What's in it for cities under review?

As a city under review, you are at the heart of the Peer Review. More specifically, your city will benefit from:

A structured self-assessment process to help identify specific needs in developing, implementing or monitoring your SUD strategy.
Specific, tailored feedback, reflections, and inspiration from your peers to directly address a challenge your are facing.
Constant expert support, guidance and advice from the team of approved EUI experts and the EUI Secretariat.
