City authorities play an important role in overcoming the Covid-19 pandemic, also by boosting local innovation ecosystems. In times of crisis, it is important to work towards:
- unlocking cities potential as local innovation ecosystem facilitators
- the creation of local partnerships for innovation based on the quadruple helix model
- scaling up already existing practices in order to overcome long-term impacts on local economies and be prepared for possible second waves.
During the workshop we will:
SHARE : experience of city innovation ecosystem to overcome the Covid-19 crisis (presentation of the city-cases collected via Eurocities WG Innovation).
SHARE : innovative solutions developed for local authorities during EUvsVirus – a pan-European hackathon to connect civil society, innovators, partners and buyers across Europe.
- SCALE-UP ON : how the cities should cooperate with actors of innovative ecosystems and in network during the crisis.
