·      giving technical support to the urban areas and systematically collect their hands-on experiences; appointed “urban area coaches” have the responsibility to establish direct links between the project consortium and the urban areas and help city administrations to gather the needed data;

·      carrying on consultation, capacity building and dissemination actions addressed to subjects both inside and outside of the project;

·      preparing realistic, harmonised and sound recommendations for further improvement and extension of the indicator system.
