European Capital of Innovation Award - iCapital

All cities with a population equal or above 100 000 inhabitants in the EU Member States or in Associated Countries to Horizon 2020 are eligible to participate in the European Capital of Innovation Award. (For the purposes of this competition, a "city" is any urban area understood as an administrative unit governed by a city council or another form of democratically elected body.)

On 8 April 2016, the European Commission awarded the title of European Capital of Innovation ("iCapital") 2016 to Amsterdam for its holistic vision of innovation related to four areas of urban life: governance, economics, social inclusion, and quality of life. Amsterdam was nominated for the prize for embracing a bottom-up approach based on smart growth, startups, livability and digital social innovation.
