  • Barcelona City Council is going to set up an integrated mechanism for seeking and capturing some of the European Funds announced under the European Reconstruction Funds framework. Its aim is to submit projects that will enable the city to make further progress in the ecological transition, the digital transition and economic promotion by actively influencing job creation and the city’s economic and social revival.

    In other words, the Council is going to start up a Joint Office led by the economic and international areas that will have the task of identifying funds as well as supporting the certification and presentation processes of city projects that could be eligible for European Reconstruction Fund funding.
