What is Europan?

We are looking for sites for 2024-2025

Do you have a site, an urban area, or a locality facing complex challenges or in need of innovative ideas? Please contact the Europan Secretariat to discuss whether it could be a suitable Europan site and how to further develop the project.

Europan is an innovation process for urban and regional development built around the European network and the architectural competition Europan.

Sites for Europan 18 will be selected in the spring of 2024.
