European Capital of Innovation 2018 award - Athens' video

Athens was awarded by the European Commission the title of the European Capital of Innovation 2018. The award ceremony took place at the Web Summit on 6 November 2018 in Lisbon. The award – that beyond the title includes a €1 million prize – comes as the recognition of the city’s success in deploying innovation to overcome the recent economic and social crisis and engaging citizens in this process. The ROCK project was an integral part of this award, demonstrating how Cultural Heritage [CH] can be a unique and powerful engine of regeneration, sustainable development and economic growth for the whole city of Athens. The video below presents some of the initiatives actively changing and improving the urban context.
