Innovation City Snapshots

The OECD Champion Mayors team is pleased to welcome Bloomberg Philanthropies as a supporting institution.

Our collaboration began at Citylab Detroit and the 4th Annual Meeting in Athens will see the launch of preliminary findings from our combined study on public sector innovation in cities and resulted in the below city innovation snapshots.
