City authorities play an important role in overcoming the Covid-19 pandemic, also by boosting local innovation ecosystems. In times of crisis, it is important to work towards:

-      unlocking cities potential as local innovation ecosystem facilitators

-      the creation of local partnerships for innovation based on the quadruple helix model

-      scaling up already existing practices in order to overcome long-term impacts on local economies and be prepared for possible second waves.

During the workshop we will:

A.    SHARE on experience of city innovation ecosystem to overcome the Covid-19 crisis (presentation of the city-cases collected via WG Innovation) and intervetion by OECD.

B.    SHARE on innovative solutions developed for local authorities during EUvsVirus - a pan-European hackathon to connect civil society, innovators, partners and buyers across Europe.

C.    SCALE-UP on how the cities should cooperate with actors of innovative ecosystems and in network during the crisis (Nesta UK)
