This is primarily an empirical paper that brings together selected results from the GaWC research programme. The latter studies inter-city relations at a global scale. Empirical research is based upon a model of world city network network formation as a product of the location strategies of global service firms. A range of findings relating to the network connectivities of European cities are presented. Beginning with a ranking of European cities in terms of their global network connectivity, further results include comparisons across different sectors, comparisons with the US cities, comparisons within major European economies, and listings of the global network powers of leading European cities.
