Bilbao City Council and Orkestra work jointly to consolidate the city as an international benchmark

Bilbao City Council and Orkestra-Basque Institute of Competitiveness have signed a collaboration agreement intended to reinforce the work that both entities are jointly developing in order to position the city as a living laboratory in the design and implementation of urban competitiveness policies.

The long lasting collaboration between both entities has resulted in initiatives like Bilbao Next Lab project, a research/action laboratory that since 2013 aims to promote smart specialisation, together with the city's stakeholders, and placing special focus on the field of advanced services.

This newly signed agreement will allow, among other challenges, to work on the recognition and positioning of Bilbao at an international level, as well as to increase its influence in the recognition of the role of cities in the Basque Country competitiveness. At the same time, this collaboration will help Orkestra to consolidate the urban competitiveness as one of its strategic lines for the coming years and establish links with other lines of research such as digitisation or energy.
