Become a contributor and share your stories with the Eurbanlab community.
With Eurbanlab we take a collaborative approach. We develop local and international partnerships with network organisations, industry leaders, solution providers and sustainable construction professionals. Through partnerships, we create a leading international network that enables the harvesting, sharing and exploitation of knowledge, ideas and experiences, on the design, planning and delivery of sustainable urban innovations.
Every month we’re searching for interesting news and articles to include in our European briefing on sustainability, climate change and urban innovations. Each briefing contains news items from other websites, articles written by Eurbanlab and its contributors, and a ‘Featured Article’ with more in-depth information on a current topic or specific theme. The briefings are sent out to our European community of sustainability professionals, construction companies, investors, governments and research institutes.
If you have something you would like to share with our community, you’re welcome to submit
a final draft of your piece to our communication’s team. There’s also an opportunity to agree upon a more
frequent collaboration to share articles and news-items.
What are we looking for?
Most of our contributors are experts on one or more of the topics we cover (urban sustainability, innovations, climate change and more).
Contributors include professors, researchers, investors, entrepreneurs, executives, consultants, authors, journalists, technologists, and engineers.
When considering op-eds for publication on our website, we look for pieces that are confident, authoritative and engaging on wide-ranging topics relating to sustainability and/or innovations. For example, it could be a story on your organisation’s latest ground-breaking initiative, a commentary on a domestic / regional / international development in any related sector, or personal insights on related topics. Most important of all, it must add value for readers. Good questions to ask are: Is your argument significant, original or insightful? Is it written in good, concise and clear English and free of jargon and technical-sounding words?
An ideal length would be between 600 to 1000 words. Accuracy and transparency are pre-requisites for any piece.
You are solely responsible for the truth and accuracy of your submitted article and should disclose any conflict of interests.
How does it work?
Send the final draft of your piece, a proposed headline, brief bio, and links to any other pieces you’ve published to info[at]eurbanlab.eu.
Do send us an e-mail if you would like to become an Eurbanlab contributor and share your stories on a more regular basis.
Our Communication’s team will review your submission and get back to you if it’s something we’re interested in posting.
We give priority to content that is written exclusively for Eurbanlab. Please note that we can’t make publishing guarantees!
Be sure to make the deadline!
If you would like to have your submission to be included in our monthly briefing on urban sustainability, please ensure you send your content before the 20th of the month.
