Find out more about Barcelona’s smart city strategy, focused around co-creation and digital rights.
Barcelona is the second-largest city in Spain and one of Europe’s leading cultural, economic and financial centres and an important transport and logistics hub.
When the ‘smart city’ was an embryonic idea, Barcelona was busy deploying responsive technologies across urban systems such as public transit, parking, street lighting and waste management.
Today, after many years of smart city development and recognition as a leader in techno-centric innovation, Barcelona’s leaders are committed to another ground-breaking vision of a new economic, social and environmental model.
By implementing this vision on a broad scale, the city intends to give more power to citizens while protecting their digital rights and applying digital strengths to solve urban problems.
