Recommendation by ZSI: EC seeks the next European Capital of Innovation

3. Aug 2015

Launch of 2nd edition of European Capital of Innovation award - open until 18 November 2015!

Won by Barcelona in 2014, this competition rewards the European city which is building the best “innovation ecosystem”, connecting citizens, public organisations, academia, and business. Given that urban areas generate two thirds of the EU's GDP, it is these areas that will contribute the most to making Europe more innovative. The new Capital of Innovation will receive €950 000 to scale up its innovation activities. The second and third cities in the ranking will respectively receive €100 000 and €50 000 for networking activities. The competition is open until 18 November 2015.

Commissioner Moedas said: "With the European Capital of Innovation Award, the European Union is recognising those cities which are making major efforts to promote innovation and improving the quality of their citizens’ lives."
