The call is open from 3 May 12.00 CET until 30 June 23.59 CET to cities based in EU Member states or Horizon 2020 Associated Countries. Any city can apply, selected as one of the 100+12 Mission Cities or not.

Twinning programme

The Twinning programme is a 20-month programme for knowledge sharing and transfer of good practices between upcoming selected Twin Cities, and the cities that were selected to join the NetZeroCities’ Pilot Cities Programme in March 2023.

The programme will be based on a practical knowledge sharing approach from Pilot Cities to Twin Cities, while also enabling a peer learning framework, allowing Pilot Cities to also learn from Twin Cities’ experiences. Upon completion of the learning cycle, Twin Cities will embed the learnings from pilot activities across the city via a Replication Plan.
