Barcelona's innovation plan adopted
The Port of Barcelona’s management board has validated the port's innovation plan. The ultimate objectives of this roadmap, which includes the proposals set out in the Port of Barcelona’s fourth strategic plan, are to strengthen the role of the port as a driver for economic growth, encourage innovation, promote the digitalisation of the logistics ecosystem and foster synergies with the city in this area.
To this end, the innovation plan proposes to launch the BCN Port Innovation Foundation, which will make it easier to manage innovative initiatives within the port community and to develop specific plans for companies in the port maritime sector.
In addition to promoting alliances with all innovation actors in the port and in the city, the plan highlights the need for more spaces for research and innovation, such as the Blue Economy technology district. (sh)
