HOW TO SUCCEED IN THE NEW NORMAL. INNOVATION AND TECHNOLOGY AS A TOOL

Cities have always concentrated capital, from human talent to financial resources. The advanced creative, research and business communities brand metropolises and attract the creators of new technologies and content. Which cities win in headhunting competition?
The Higher School of Economics analyzed technological development, creative sector, infrastructure and institutional environment of 36 global centers and calculated the first Global Cities Innovation Index (HSE GCII) using a brand-new system of 120 indicators. Its first public presentation and discussion with urban governance practitioners, representatives of the knowledge economy and creative sector will take place during this session.

  • What factors make metropolises attractive for the members of the innovative class?
  • Which places are chosen by researchers, corporate heads and startups, designers, architects and artists, and why?
  • How will cities gain leadership in the future race for most talented individuals?
