Poblenou Maker District

Description / Objectives

Open, productive, sustainable, collaborative city project in Poblenou.

Based on a prototype of a productive and scalable city, which aims to contribute to the city's reindustrialisation through activities, services and projects that promote interaction between local communities and citizen initiatives, while also being linked to a global community.

Digital social innovation is fostered through the use of open technologies to combat societal challenges, and aims to enable a community of workshops, maker spaces, Fab Labs, universities, research institutions, restaurants, businesses and active social movements in neighbourhoods that foster these new values for Barcelona: those of a city that is open, collaborative, democratic, inclusive, productive, circular, innovative and creative.
