Digital Transition Plan

The Digital Transition Plan is the roadmap that includes, among other things, the ICT Plan’s projects for this term of office, the sectoral plans for each manager’s office, the technology plan of the Municipal Institute of Information Technology (IMI) and the mainstreaming plan.

It is led strategically by the Manager's Office for Digital Innovation and Transition at Barcelona City Council and governed, coordinated and implemented by the IMI. 

This plan is aimed at making authorities more efficient and capable, with a greater capacity for providing service to an increasingly digitised public. The key components for implementing Barcelona City Council's Internal Digitisation Plan are as follows: 

  • The Technology Plan features all the initiatives — not just the properly technological ones but also others which are methodological and tool-building — which support the IMI’s own functions, of the internal transition of people and their capabilities, invariably cross-cutting in nature.
  • The Sectoral Plan is a collection of the various sectoral plans of the City Council’s various areas and features a set of initiatives that meet the needs and goals of each of Barcelona City Council’s manager's offices and initiatives in line with the Municipal Action Plan (PAM).
  • The Cross-cutting Plan leads and promotes the incorporation of the City Council’s new digital model. This plan’s initiatives are transforming the relationship with city residents towards a more pro-active model through the automation of procedural tasks, by ensuring secure online access.

The Barcelona City Council, through the IMI, engages in the ICT and Smart Cities fields with the European Commission and collaborates with other European cities on European projects, making Barcelona one of the reference models for many countries in the continent.

Furthermore, Barcelona's strategy towards the Next Generation EU Funds (NGEU) represents the city's response to the crisis caused by Covid-19. Barcelona aims to undergo a comprehensive change that enables it to become a more resilient city in the face of future crises, focusing on energy and ecological transition, digital transition, and social cohesion.

Within the framework of Spain's Recovery, Transformation, and Resilience Plan (PRTR), the IMI is developing 12 projects to implement this transformation.
