The Brussels Capital Region was among the fifteen finalists of the "Guangzhou International Award for Urban Innovation" this year, out of a total of 171 candidate cities. The award ceremony took place on 7 December, during the International Urban Innovation Conference in Guangzhou (China). The jury choose the city of Copenhagen above the Brussels' project as one of the 5 winning cities. Nevertheless, the aim of the award is to share information with other cities rather than being a winner. The visibility and international recognition for Brussels was huge !
