Cities are where innovation happens, where most ideas form and economic growth largely stems. The world’s most innovative cities act as a global catalyst for change. As more cities seek to have impact, we need to understand what drives success.

Over the past two years we have been researching which are the most innovative cities in the past, the present and potentially in the future. Exploring multiple criteria, we have identified what we believe to be the key global catalysts for change.

This presentation shares the insights. It profiles the 10 most innovative cities of the past, the 10 having greatest impact today, the key elements that contribute to a city being so innovative and, lastly, suggests candidates for future global leadership.
