Herman Van Rompuy Awards Public Service Innovation Prize

30/04/2015

On behalf of the European Centre for Government Transformation – a multidisciplinary centre of excellence led by the Lisbon Council, the College of Europe and Accenture – Herman Van Rompuy, president emeritus of the European Council and former prime minister of Belgium, awarded The 2015 Public Sector Innovation Prize to a team of College of Europe students for their fascinating case study on expanding mobility in the city of Barcelona, Spain. Founded in 2009, the European Centre for Government Transformation brings top-level civil servants, leading academics and thought leaders together in a multidisciplinary hub dedicated to promoting and exchanging best practice in the field of public-sector modernisation. Each year, four teams of College of Europe students take part each year in a year-long programme, where they study the problems of a leading European public administration – and propose innovative solutions to the administrations they follow. Later, the case studies are competitively evaluated by a jury of high-level present and former civil servants. This year, the jury was led by Neelie Kroes, special envoy for startups and leader of the Startup Delta Initiative in the Netherlands and former vice president of the European Commission. Each of the 2015 case studies focused on a winner of the European Capital of Innovation ‘iCapital’ Award. The results were published in College of Europe Student Case Studies Final Report 2015, which was launched in the presence of President Van Rompuy in the margins of the awards ceremony in Bruges.
