Impulsem el que fas (We promote what you do) - Digital social innovation method

Description / Objectives

Ethical and responsible use of technology to foster digital innovation with social impact.

Barcelona is committed to the ethical and responsible use of technology to foster digital innovation with social impact. The Impulsem el que fas subsidy, organised by Barcelona Activa, offers a solution to Barcelona's high social impact needs, such as recycling, digital inclusion, bridging the digital gap - with particular emphasis on the gender perspective - or the fight against energy poverty, among others. 

The Digital social innovation in the territories category supports projects that make the most of digital connectivity, distributed technology and protecting people's right to privacy, as well as robotics and artificial intelligence, open data, open knowledge and open machinery, those that work in the areas of social inclusion, education for digital empowerment, and solutions for new, more sustainable lifestyles and the circular economy. Up to now, 16 projects have enjoyed the support of 500,000 euros in the areas of education, energy management and the circular economy.
