SUNRISE will activate at least 20 Take-up neighbourhoods with the aim to cover EU-member states in all regions. SUNRISE envisages formalising the establishment of the Take-up Cities Groups by means of a Memorandum of Understanding that will be concluded with the respective Take-up Cities. The process will be supported by an annual work plan, based upon an initial terms of reference document, following a user needs assessment to understand the challenges and anticipate outcomes. The process will be finalised in month 48 of the project.
