Innovating Cities in Europe and Worldwide
The European Union has recognised sustainable urbanisation as a global challenge. EU research and innovation programmes are helping cities to become inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable in Europe and other cities worldwide.
This booklet showcases 23 successful EU-funded projects on urban innovation that are transforming our cities into European and global actors pursuing open research and innovation, dealing with energy and climate, urban transport, nature-based solutions, green lifestyles in resilient cities, food, social innovation, well-being, cultural heritage and urban governance. It takes a closer look at outstanding cases, among which the much-praised cities of Paris and Amsterdam, recent winners of the European Innovation Capital Award.
