A major global survey being conducted by the INNOVCITIES project has recently been closed after receiving responses from 96 cities across 6 continents.
This survey aimed to assess the types of institutional innovation occurring in cities across the world, and explanatory factors for these changes. The survey targeted 120 cities across the world, distributed evenly across and within continents. Relevant experts from sectors such as government, academia, NGOs, and industry were invited to complete the survey. The survey was made available in 7 languages: English, Spanish, French, Portuguese, Chinese, Arabic, and Russian. The survey period was May-July 2017 (10 weeks).
In total, experts from 96 cities responded, comprising a total of N=316 individual responses. For 68 cities, two or more responses were obtained, which helps to increase confidence in the final data.
Currently this data is being analysed for both policy and academic outputs. As a first step, a Policy Report is being prepared to rapidly share descriptive findings with respondents and other interested stakeholders. The target launch date for the report is February 2018. Various academic publications are also being prepared and will be made available as soon as possible.
