Barcelona Science Plan
The new Barcelona Science Plan for 2020-2023 is aimed at launching a science and university policy in the city area and turning it into the European capital for research and innovation. The plan was drafted through collaboration and consensus between the city’s scientific community — thanks to the Scientific Advisory Council —, research centres, companies, universities, authorities and city residents taking part in it. In 2021, the plan has been given a new impetus to adapt to the needs and challenges set by COVID-19.
It is organised into four areas: Barcelona, city of science in Europe; research for taking on the city’s challenges; scientific culture for and with city residents; and science, art, innovation and society.
The four axes
- Axis 1 - Barcelona, European city of science
- Axis 2 - Research for tackling urban challenges
- Axis 3 - Science culture by and for citizens
- Axis 4 - Science, art, innovation and society
A commitment to knowledge and innovative solutions in favour of quality of life, ageing, mobility and the environment.
4 areas of work, 15 objectives and more than 50 actions.
