New LSE Cities report: Innovation in Europe’s Cities

A report by LSE Cities on Bloomberg Philanthropies’ 2014 Mayors Challenge
Launched on 4 February 2015 in London

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. 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 draws on this work as well as research on the social, economic and political dynamics of cities at a global and European level, a wider lens through which to better view and understand the themes uncovered by the European Mayors Challenge. The report offers an overview of global dynamics in an urban age before identifying the key themes addressed by the submissions for the award. The report concludes by offering a series of reflections on what the Challenge tells us about some of the key issues facing city governments across Europe today.
