City of Tampere among the TOP 10 finalists of European Capital of Innovation
Learning Scoop is pleased to have its hub in one of the most innovative cities in Europe, Tampere. The city of Tampere took part of contest for the European Capital of Innovation Award 2017.
The competition searched for cities that have innovative ideas to improve the quality of urban life and for getting citizens more involved in their communities.
The city of Tampere participated in the competition with a proposal called Grow.Smart.Together. It presents the city’s innovation platforms and activities through the example of Hiedanranta district and its development. It offers a great example of how citizens, companies, universities, communities and city administration develop – co-create – the city together.
Being ranked among the top ten European innovation cities is an important recognition for Tampere, for our knowhow and our co-creation approach in developing a smart and sustainable city.
The other finalists were Aarhus, Berlin, Copenhagen, Helsinki, Nice, Paris, Tallinn, Tel Aviv and Toulouse. Paris was chosen as the winner at Web Summit in Lisbon. Congratulations once again!
