Most notable is the one in the south of Europe formed by the Barcelona-Lyon corridor, which encompasses 27.3 million inhabitants and a production of over 700,000 million euros, ascribing it a significant critical mass among the 12 European mega-regions. • Barcelona has easy access to very dynamic large markets:the EU common market, which provides access to 510 million people. In addition, it forms part of the axis of the Mediterranean corridor, a Trans-European Network for transporting goods with a direct impact on an area of 250 million inhabitants (50% of the EU population), so improving this connection would be a strategic opportunity to increase the market share of the port traffic of goods coming from Asia. It also offers the strategic potential of relations with the 43 countries that form the Union for the Mediterranean, which include the territories of those in Eastern Europe, Africa and the Middle East.

  20. 20. 21 DIGITAL CITY, CREATIVITY, RESEARCH AND INNOVATION Digital city, creativity, research and innovation Barcelona leads Spain’s advance towards a knowledge economy • Barcelona seeks to become a point of reference in the field of technology to improve the quality of life in a global context in which mobile technology is a key vector for the growth of the economy as a whole. In this context, the role of Barcelona as Mobile World Capital, hosting the Mobile World Congress and the industrial legacy project - present a strategic opportunity to position the city in this sector of activity. • Nowadays,Barcelona offers one of the most dynamic ecosystems for digital entrepreneurship and according to the Innovation Cities Index 2018 is the 8th more innovative city in Europe and the 30th in the word. • Similarly, the British consultancy Atomico ranks it as the 3rd favourite European city for establishing start-ups, after London and Berlin, and the fourth for the volume of investment received for start-ups in 2017 (The State of European Tech 2017). • As regards the distribution of the investment in start-ups by sector in Barcelona, most notable is the capital invested in the mobile sector (55% of the total), followed by electronic commerce (25%) and those of a social nature (10%). • In 2017, the area of Barcelona generated 13.9% of the applications for utility models and 13.2% of the patents in the Spanish State as a whole. Catalonia is the region with the highest number of innovative companies in Spain (23%) and 24.3% of the State’s total expenditure in innovative activities. • Barcelona was ranked fifth in Europe and 18th worldwide in scientific production in 2017, according to data prepared by the Polytechnic University of Catalonia using the Science Citation Index. • The expenditure in R+D in Catalonia was 1.46% of GDP in 2016,lower than the average in the European Union but higher than that of Spain and regions such as Lombardy and London.There are 46,592 members of staff dedicated to research and development in the Principality. • Creative activities brought Barcelona over 130,000 jobs in 2017, representing 12.3% of employment in the city and half (49.6%) of creative jobs in Catalonia. It should be pointed out that, according to the latest research, a higher percentage of employees in creative industries is very intensely correlated to a higher level of production per inhabitant. • The Cultural and Creative Cities Monitor 2017 from the European Commission ranks Barcelona as the ninth large city in terms of vitality and creativity. 2nd European city according to the Digital Citiy Index 2017 (Bloom Consulting) for establishing start-ups (Atomico) 3rd European hub preferred
