We've received 19 applications from 17 different cities for this year's EUROCITIES awards
We have received 19 entries from 17 of our member cities for this year’s EUROCITIES awards.
Cities were invited to submit entries in three categories:
Cooperation – how city authorities and other partners work together in new business models and partnerships, spanning city departments and city boundaries, to implement energy intelligent solutions in infrastructure and the built environment.
Innovation – activities or projects that showcase innovative energy efficient solutions, e.g. through decentralised energy production, smart grids and alternative fuel infrastructure, or through examples of energy intelligent mobility.
Participation – activities or projects where cities are working together with citizens, communities and local businesses, empowering them to live, work and travel in more energy intelligent ways.
We have received entries from the following cities: Amsterdam, Antwerp, Budapest, Dortmund, Edinburgh, Espoo, Frankfurt, Gothenburg, Liverpool, Malaga, Malmo, Manchester, Oslo, Rotterdam, Tampere, The Hague, and Vilnius.
An independent jury will draw up a shortlist of three entries per category by early July. The jury consists of: Joachim Lorenz, Munich’s head of department for environment and health; Ivan Tosics from Budapest’s Metropolitan Research Institute; Marie-Hélène Vareille, policy officer at European Commission DG ENV; Sabine Bock from Women in Europe for a Common Future; and Susanne Pöchlau, head of unit knowledge & research at Bayrischer Rundfunk.
Shortlisted cities will be asked to produce a brief video introducing their project. The videos will be shown at the awards ceremony during EUROCITIES 2014 Munich on 5 November, when the winners in each category will be announced.
