Dublin has been awarded joint second place in an EU awards ceremony marking the most innovative cities in Europe.
The awards, which began in 2014, recognise cities’ long-term efforts to create an environment that enables and embraces innovation.
Dublin and Malaga share a €100,000 cash prize while Dortmund has been awarded €1 million for taking home the lead award.
“I am honoured to highlight these cities that are the real test beds for innovation. They co-create bottom-up initiatives to achieve more sustainable urban development,” said Mariya Gabriel, Commissioner for Innovation.
