Program Officer, Urban and Regional Policy ProgramDate Posted: September 25, 2014The Urban and Regional Policy (URP) Program serves as a key resource and network builder for individuals and groups who make, influence, and implement urban and regional policy in the North America and Europe. The program seeks to inspire innovation and work collaboratively to apply new ideas on the ground by building networks of local and regional policy makers and practitioners.

Under this theme, the Program Officer will be responsible for executing existing programs (.e.g. European Cities Network or METROs, Transatlantic Cities Network), conceptualizing new initiatives, and coordinating with the URP team on larger activities such as GMF major conferences and the Bilbao Urban Innovation and Leadership Dialogues.
