Catalonia has adopted the Europe 2020 priorities and is committed to a model of growth that is:

  • smart, based on knowledge and innovation,
  • sustainable, environmentally-friendly and efficient in the use of resources, and
  • inclusive, generating employment and guaranteeing social and territorial cohesion.


The Catalonia 2020 Strategy (ECAT 2020) and Catalonia’s Smart Specialisation Strategy (RIS3CAT) establish policies and initiatives to promote this growth model.
