Lisbon has been ranked as the third most innovative city in the world according to a new report by Ambreyewear.

Ambreyewear decided to look into where in the world is best for innovative and creative minds. It took into consideration “innovation, creativity, connectivity, education, wellbeing, and employment opportunities”. Innovation is the home of creativity and progress and new research from Ambreyewear reveals that Lisbon is ranked third in terms of innovation only coming behind Paris and Barcelona.

Most significantly, Lisbon ranked first in the world for Education as the report showed that it is the best place for learning. The findings were that there is access to nearly one university for every square mile, representing a total of 34 universities. Furthermore, two of Lisbon’s public universities are featured in the QS World Rankings 2021 as well as one private university.

The prestigious Lisbon University ranks 357 worldwide and has been commended for having a very high research output. It also has seven science museums which is why it ranks so highly in terms of education.

Lisbon also scored well in terms of creativity and it was ranked eighth in the world due to its city’s 49 art galleries and 31 notable architectural buildings. Finally, it ranked 9 in the world for Media and Technology as it saw 852 technology jobs and 1,187 jobs in Media.


Research done by a store that sells glasses. Okay..

Also, no details how any of the rankings are calculated. This is news that is destined for the shredder

Are you serious? Whoever wrote this must be HIGH or on drugs. Lmao. I traveled to 5 continents, perhaps more than 86 cities. Lisbon is great but it's nowhere near innovative or creative. It lagged behind a lot of major capitals, let alone be on top. So cringy. To Ambreeyewear: Please stick to selling sunglasses and stop your false propaganda. The top 3 include Paris, Barcelona, and Lisbon? Are you serious? GO HOME, YOU'RE DRUNK!

Good for a laugh...
So many issues in the article that you have to know it is someone's idea of a joke.

Ambreyewear? Search it and nothing remotely resembling world-wide research comes up. What/who is the source of these results? Your publication is bordering sensationalism.

I wonder who paid Ambreyewear for this result. Funny that ALL cities are in Europe and those that have travelled outside Europe know that this is bullshit.
