The DUT (Driving Urban Transitions to a sustainable future) is a partnership under Horizon Europe. The aim of the DUT call for proposals is to support transnational research and/or innovation projects addressing urban challenges to help cities in their transition to a more sustainable economy and way of operating.

You can find out more about the DUT partnership here.

The challenges are grouped into three themes known as "transition pathways":

  • Positive Energy Districts (PEDs)
  • 15-minutes city (15mC)
  • The Urban Circular Economy (UCE)

Each theme is divided up into several topics. You’ll find all the details about the Call on the following page.


The call for pre-proposals for DUT 2023 is now closed. Applicants selected on the basis of the pre-proposals are invited to submit a full proposal for 30 April 2024, 13h CEST. Please note that the DUT 2024 project call will be launched in late summer 2024.

The submission process

  • Carefully read the call text, and consult the conditions of eligibility before submitting a project
  • Submit the project via the online submission system here. 
  • All Brussels project partners must submit a regional application for funding application to Innoviris in parallel to the European submission. The submission form (only in French and Dutch but you can fill it in in English) is available on the French or Dutch page. The non-submission of your proposal to Innoviris will render your participation ineligible.
