Amsterdam has won the title of European Capital of Innovation. Eindhoven has ended outside of the top 3, as was decided vrijdag afternoon in Brussel. Second place goes to Turin and third place to Paris.
Eindhoven was in the race on the basis of its ‘Enlightening Tomorrow’s Society’. The use of light is the main theme. For example the way colored lights tried to make it safer in Stratumseind.
Amsterdam won with its bottom-up approach based on smart growth, startups, livability and digital social innovation. It is also the home of two top universities and the science center NEMO.
