Government of Catalonia

Facilitating departmental collaboration advancing Catalonia's innovation ecosystem



Towards innovation ecosystems for the common good

In a context of accelerating change and polycrisis governments increasingly see themselves fostering innovation ecosystems where social matters are at the core. This means orienting private innovation ecosystems towards the common good and complementing them by public infrastructures that support the participation of citizens, administrations and research centers along private counterparts. The public innovation ecosystem of Catalonia, from Catlabs to the current version named Collaboratori, aims to create this type of infrastructure.


Leaders in the Ministry of the Presidency of Catalonia were struggling to align with other departments involved in the development of Catlabs, a program to build public infrastructures to foster a more social and digital innovation ecosystem in the country.


Design and facilitation of a series of meetings and workshops to explore the next version of Catlabs.
