This paper presents the results of the EUROCITIES survey on our member cities’ local innovation ecosystems. Our purpose is to identify cities needs and challenges in developing and growing their ecosystems as well as policy recommendations to EU policy makers concerning future policy developments and funding programmes related to innovation.
The paper includes key findings on innovation strategies and visions, partnerships, city to city cooperation and international collaboration. At the same, it identifies challenges and bottlenecks that local innovation systems are likely to tackle. To this extent, EUROCITIES has elaborated policy recommendations to EU institutions, which are listed and illustrated in the paper.
