The award, granted within the context of the EU research and innovation programme Horizon 2020, European cities are recognised for developing lively innovation ecosystems, dealing with public challenges and improving the life of the people. A distinguished jury of independent experts selected the twelve finalists. The most important criterion was how the cities make use of innovative solutions in order to respond to the challenges facing society, how they integrate such practices into the urban development process and how society is involved in decision making. The winning city Leuven (Belgium) will not only boast the title "European Innovation Capital 2020" but will also receive € 1 million to link innovations from the public sector, universities and companies with each other and thus generate the maximum benefits for its society.The five runner-up cities – in addition to Vienna, Cluj-Napoca (Romania), Espoo (Finland), Helsingborg (Sweden) and Valencia (Spain)  – will receive €100,000 each.
