while the IPAofNorthRhine-Westphalia, NRW.Global Business and London Partners are recognised for their after- care strategy and economic recovery potential, respectively. In the fifth edition of the annual


fDi’s Strategy Awards, the judges reviewed the 55 locations and IPAs that had already stood out in the major rank- ings published by fDi throughout 2020 —the inaugural Tech Cities of the Future and Tier 2 Cities of the Future rankings, as well as the European Cities and Regions of the Future 2020/2021. While most of the entries were


collected before Covid-19 struck, or right at the outset of the pandemic, they high- light some of the elements which went on to determine the success of IPA activi- ties throughout the pandemic. The judges have captured these elements in two new main awards categories: best aftercare strategy and best economic recovery potential.
