RUGGEDISED partnership extended for another year

3 November 2021

The RUGGEDISED partners have decided to officially extend the project until October 31st, 2022, following dialogue with the European Commission. The extension will allow the Lighthouse Cities to fully monitor the implemented solutions, following some delays associated with the COVID-19 pandemic.

Originally, RUGGEDISED was scheduled to wrap-up activities by the end of this month, but the decision to continue work has been underway for a while, explains coordinator Albert Engels from the City of Rotterdam:

“It became clear to us when COVID struck that some form of extension would be needed. To fully capitalise on the implementation of innovative solutions in all our cities, a thorough monitoring of their successes - and challenges - is needed. The continuation of our solid partnership is key to making this happen,” he says.
