EURA cooperates with the professional and scientific bodies in the field of planning:

Association of European Schools of Planning (AESOP)

The Executive Committee of AESOP and the Governing Board of EURA have signed a Memorandum of Understanding, based on the mutual benefit to become business associates. As such they have agreed to:

  • Have an open attitude to explore possibilities for collaboration. Specific agreements of collaboration can be drawn up when appropriate opportunities arise.
  • Maintain open channels of communication between the Secretariats of both organisations and between the Executive Committee and Governing Board of both organisations.
  • Inform the counterpart organisation of the events and activities being undertaken by the organisation.
  • Establish a link on the web-sites of the respective organisations.
  • Invite the counterpart organisation to be officially represented and when appropriate actively at the Main Events of the organisation.

Urban Affairs Assocation (UAA)

EURA has always had a very good working relationship with the Urban Affairs Association (UAA)

  • The UAA supported the development of the concept of EURA in the period before EURA was launched in 1997.
  • The UAA has very similar aims to EURA. It is dedicated to creating interdisciplinary spaces for engaging in intellectual and practical discussions about urban life.
  • In 2004 EURA and UAA co-organised a joint conference on City Futures
  • Held in Chicago the conference was a great success and the two associations decided to co-organise a City Futures conference every five years.

Members of EURA are now able to participate in UAA conferences at a discounted rate. In return UAA members can participate in EURA conferences at a reduced rate.
