Victory for courage and dreams - this is how innovation flows in Vantaa!
Vantaa is the European Rising Innovative City 2021! This is a win for courage, crazy dreams, working together for a common good.
In November 2021, Vantaa was chosen as the European Rising Innovative City and, with the win, received a prize amount of 500,000 euros. A significant part of that was spent on arranging an innovation competition called Urban innovations of all sizes.
A whopping 174 proposals were received for the innovation competition. The celebration of innovations continues during Vantaa’s Innovation Festival Week, October 24-30.
The jury of the iCapital Awards drew attention to, among other things, Vantaa’s rapid growth and ambitious ecological goals. Vantaa is full of social innovations from people to people, and the city also supports this cooperation.
