Science & Technology

From the industrial revolution to today’s thriving start-up scene, Catalonia has long been a hotbed of innovation, science and new technologies.

Renewable energy

World leaders in renewables

Representing Catalonia’s deep-rooted desire for a progressive, environmentally conscious society, innovation in renewable energy is continuous, despite the Spanish government’s so-called “sun tax”, and continues to reduce the country’s reliance on fossil fuels.

New technologies

A strategic sector in Catalonia

Now employing 3.9% of the working population, the sector easily outstrips other strategic sectors such as the automotive industry. In addition, the number of companies specialising in this sector has grown by more than 5% in the last three years, now accounting for 15,077 firms.
