Projectes internacionals - Intro

We strive to position Barcelona Activa on an international level

By identifying financing opportunities and networking with other local and international bodies and entities, we foster the development of new projects to strengthen Barcelona Activa’s strategic position in the field of economic policy and local development.

Our involvement in international cooperation projects with organisations from all over Europe, awards, recognition and good practice, as well as our contribution to forums, presentations, think tanks and other prestigious spaces for reflection, project Barcelona Activa as an entity of international reference in socio-economic development.

Furthermore, by generating and implementing international projects, exchanging knowledge and networking with other organisations promoting local economic development, we can incorporate good practices, and innovative methodologies developed at an international level. Our international projects are also intended to secure resources, such as European funds, which allow us to offer new services to citizens and strengthen our existing programmes and training courses in Barcelona.
