Barcelona’s Innovation Ecosystem

How do we create synergies with the new economy?

Innovation hubs have become a strategy for attracting talent and wealth to cities. However, more research is needed on the form of the knowledge economy in urban settings, the spatial relationships it generates and how its success is transferred to the city. We looked into the urban conditions that promote innovation and identified three main economic and urban models. The ultimate goal of the project was to evaluate the potential of urban decisions for economic transformation, be it through ensuring they attract this new economy or guaranteeing that the surrounding fabrics benefit from its presence.
