Barcelona is promoting a new innovation challenge to improve the liveability and energy performance of housing in Barcelona, through new materials and/or new uses of existing materials, new technology and new designs. 

A moment from the City Leadership Forum held in Barcelona.

The City Leadership Forum is being held at Ca l’Alier on 8 and 9 June, offering a meeting of experts in digitisation and urban innovation from different cities to discuss digitisation as a tool for improving people’s quality of life. The meeting includes round tables, activities on innovation and technology, digital rights and cybersecurity.
