Objectives
– Identify urban ecosystems that connect citizens, the public sector, academia, and business, and successfully translate their results into improved wellbeing of their citizens. The award is part of the European Union’s efforts to raise awareness about the benefits of urban innovation ‘with’ and ‘for’ the citizens, supporting cities in addressing relevant societal challenges, and strengthening their urban resilience;
– Raise the profile of city teams that have developed and implemented innovative policies; enhanced citizens’ role in finding local solutions and participating in the decision-making process; facilitated the city attractiveness towards investors, industry, top class talents and entrepreneurial individuals; helped the city to open up connections with others and cooperate with them, thus inspiring and helping identify best practices to be replicated across Europe;
– Bring high visibility in the form of renewed public interest and increased media coverage
