Financial Times And Citi Name Finalists For 2013 FT/Citi Ingenuity Awards

The Financial Times and Citi today announce the finalists for the second annual FT/Citi Ingenuity Awards: Urban Ideas in Action programme. The awards aim to recognise individuals, teams, organisations and community groups that have developed groundbreaking solutions to urban challenges that benefit cities, citizens and urban communities.

Submissions were received from 44 countries and judges selected the finalists by region, based on the most innovative solutions enabling urban progress across city administration, transport systems, energy and utilities, education and resource management, housing, health, social services, mobile technologies, community engagement and collaboration platforms.

One winner will be chosen for each region and a global winner will be announced at an awards dinner in New York on December 10, where Edward Glaeser, Fred and Eleanor Glimp Professor of Economics at Harvard University, will deliver the keynote address.
