Design Sector

Over the past 25 years Barcelona has become one of the world capitals of design. Thus, as design has become a strategic sector for Barcelona, 22@Barcelona is developing the Design Cluster, a cluster of excellence and innovation with international projection, in the city center. This cluster model also creates the necessary conditions to attract new companies and innovative talent from around the world and encourages the creation of a community of professionals connected to the global network.

The Design Cluster, driven by BCD together with 22@Barcelona, will dynamize the business fabric with both inter- and intra-sectorial events, and will reinforce the Barcelona brand in the design and innovation field internationally. Currently, the 22@Barcelona area already has a number of service companies, like those located in Palo Alto (Estudi Mariscal, Morera Design, ADD + Arquitectura, Alex Gasca+Train01, Duch Claramunt, Fernando Salas Studio, GEC-UOC Grup, Laiguana, Pasarela, Puresang and Sans Visual Studio), as well as Ruiz+Company, Torres & Torres, Estudi Arola and CDN; in addition to the Open University of Catalonia, the Pompeu Fabra University and BAU School of Design; plus the Leitat Technology Center, among others.

Bio Technology Sector

Biotechnology has experienced an extraordinary development in the last decade and at the moment it forms part of the technology portfolios of the most advanced countries in the world. Advances in this area have brought about qualitative transformations in products, and this will allow sectors like the pharmaceutical, chemical, and agro foods industries to find new competitive advantages.

Although Barcelona finds itself at the beginning of the development of the biotechnology sector, its starting point is compensated by its rate of growth. The 204 companies that currently form the Catalan biotechnology sector have mainly been created over the last five years. In fact, over the last few years the biotechnology sector has seen accumulated rises in terms of the number of companies in the sector of around 30%. The Spanish pharmaceutical sector is mainly concentrated in Catalonia, which accounts for 50% of the pharmaceutical laboratories in Spain, 60% of its production, and 66% of companies working in fine chemicals. In fact, Catalonia is the origin and headquarters of the four main Spanish pharmaceutical companies: Almirall Prodesfarma, Esteve, Ferrer Internacional and Uriach. [+]
