UIA: thanks to TO-nite project 5M€ in Turin for social innovation ideas focused on urban security

Through UIA (Urban Innovative Actions), the European Union has awarded Turin 4.600.000 euros that will be invested by the Local Administration to implement a program focused on urban security through the redevelopment and recovery of degraded areas and the activation of technological and social innovation projects to guarantee higher levels of social cohesion and civil coexistence.

TO-nite project is supported by the City of Turin as the main partner, in partnership with SocialFare, Fondazione Wireless, Experientia, Engineering, European Forum for Urban Security (EFUS), Espereal Technologies and ANCI.

The City of Turin is one of the few cities in Europe to have twice won European funding for the Urban Innovative Actions program: already in 2016 the City was awarded the prestigious UIA funding with the Co-City project, focused on fighting poverty and degradation in the most fragile parts of the city, in particular in actions of social innovation and environmental redevelopment, making it possible to activate development paths for the co-production of services and the creation of companies linked to welfare.

To-nite is characterized by multidisciplinary solutions and actions to better understand urban social phenomena and to tackle the problems deriving from a perception of insecurity. In particular, the project will direct its action to experiment with services that extend even at night in areas of different density, accessibility and attractiveness.
