"For Barcelona this could mean really taking the initiative and consolidating its position as one of the most attractive cities for innovation and talent in southern Europe", she asserts. She also points out that long-term vision, public-private collaboration, and the backing of a committee of experts with cross-disciplinary knowledge and international vision are essential for achieving this.
