Barcelona is "iCapital" of Europe

The European Commission has awarded the European Capital of Innovation ("iCapital") prize to Barcelona (Spain) "for introducing the use of new technologies to bring the city closer to citizens". Barcelona was chosen by a panel of independent experts in a close competition with Grenoble (France) and Groningen (The Netherlands). The €500,000 iCapital prize will be used to scale up and expand Barcelona's efforts on innovation. Barcelona was announced as the winner at the closing ceremony of the Innovation Convention 2014.
