The Innovation in Europe’s Cities report was launched in London on the 4 February. Throughout 2014, researchers from LSE Cities provided input to Bloomberg Philanthropies on the political and demographic make-up of selected European cities, and carried out an objective assessment of the level of innovation shown by the shortlisted proposals.

The report gives an overview of the key themes facing European cities today and provides an independent analysis of the 155 submissions to the award and a detailed review of the five winning proposals from Barcelona, Athens, Kirklees, Stockholm and Warsaw.
