Work area: Entrepreneurship & Innovation

“Improving our capacity for enterprise and innovation. Catalan society has historically proven to be imaginative, creative and enterprising. It is important to shore up these characteristic features over the coming years with initiatives that boost added-value businesses, industry and technology, the service economy, our education network and, above all, our knowledge of foreign languages. This is a challenge that can be achieved by changing our mentality and providing support and social recognition to entrepreneurs.”
