Choosing the Award winner

The Jury was made up of seven representatives from EU institutions, the private sector and NGOs, as well as the Rapporteur from the Evaluation Committee. The European Commission, in collaboration with the International Trade Centre, nominates the Jury. The members of the Jury serve on a voluntary basis; they do not receive any financial compensation for their contributions.

The Jury selected the winner and ‘Special Mentions’ from the shortlist provided by the Evaluation Committee. The Jury based its decision on the content of the shortlisted applications, the evaluation reports from the Evaluation Committee, as well as the the presentations pitched by the cities via video-conference.

The Jury took final decisions on the Award Winner and Special Mentions in a closed, non-public vote.
