Abstract

Successful European cities combine high growth, good social outcomes and sustainable development. European cities have a range of different specializations, namely, manufacturing, tertiary services, government, to which interact with each other in complex ways. Compared to their United Kingdom counterparts, many big European cities seem to have higher population growth, educational achievement, quality of life and attractiveness to investors. Many cities on the Continent use formal and informal institutions to ensure that planning and investment are consistent across the real geography of cities. Strong executive leadership is visible in most big cities. Cities like Paris, Berlin and Amsterdam are leaders in integrated, affordable and reliable urban transport systems. There are also cities who show ways to combine good public spaces, high-density urban living and a wide range of other uses in inner urban locations. Furthermore, cities like Stuttgart and Helsinki have built up excellent local innovation systems and have touted their offer to research-intensive businesses.
