Innovative Solutions Responding to the Needs of Cities & Communities

Objective

CommuniCity conducts a large number of innovation pilots in many local communities, both urban, peri-urban and rural, including two EU capitals, aiming to empower hard-to-reach and marginalized communities. It creates three cycles of increasing size, building on two dynamic networks of local administrations and living labs of all sizes.

CommuniCity builds on recent highlighted and awarded European as well as national place-based and locally-driven innovation programmes, methods, living labs and platforms. It brings the learnings of these together, and devises an inclusive, community-driven, agile innovation and experimentation model. With this model it runs a large co-creation process, first involving local communities in the challenge definitions, then developing innovative solutions through open calls promoted at the European level as well as locally. It will create new insights into local community innovation processes as well as principles and models of how to scale these insights in inclusive and sustainably manners. In addition, CommuniCity will produce a large number of novel innovations anchored in the needs of the local communities, and an exemplary approach that is followed throughout Europe.

The core partner cities are already leading and copied smart communities globally because of their diverse approach and ambition to co-create and share learnings. The same goes for the additional four cities and the two networks. The aim is to push the frontier of community-driven innovation much deeper in society and to the margins of society so that the development and testing of novel innovations better serves the needs of the whole society, based on European values, in the world.
