We at the Barcelona City Council are committed to and firmly believe that Innovation is the key strategic option for the future. Economic and social evolution will come about through a knowledge-based economy, moving beyond the industrial era.  In our current situation, those cities that are able to move towards a knowledge-based economy, taking advantage of the growing number of technological innovations, will have a better chance of being competitive in global markets.

Moreover, Barcelona has all the necessary ingredients to take on a leading role in projects that substantially improve innovation indicators. The most innovative and creative cities are those that undertake entrepreneurial activities, that participate and are connected; and Barcelona is already a creative, knowledge-based city.

Therefore, one of the 22@Barcelona municipal company’s main goals is to foster innovation in the city of Barcelona, through specific projects to generate sophisticated demand through both private and public initiatives. Thus the district becomes an urban laboratory to test new products and it allows Barcelona to become a model of innovation in all fields.

Have a look at the services 22@Barcelona offers companies to help foster innovation and technology in the business fabric, and to develop their business activity successfully.
