BCN|Open Challenge sets a new standard for accountability and transparency within Barcelona’s regulatory and procurement decisions. The game-changing process allows citizens access to more information about how problems are solved in the city.
Available data shows that by opening its problems to the market, Barcelona will not only gain more market intelligence, but can deliver better solutions to its citizens up to three times faster. As a result, the entire procurement process becomes more cost-efficient.
This efficiency opens doors for companies, especially SMEs, with new technologies and innovative approaches to win opportunities in public procurement. Using the open challenge process to procure real solutions means public spending rewards innovation and competitiveness, nurtures high-quality talent and attracts investment to the city.
Barcelona Activa will support entrepreneurs, accelerate the creation of jobs in competitive business, and strengthen the city’s global brand as a trusted innovation leader.
BCN|Open Challenge also carries an important social impact by improving the quality of life of Barcelona’s citizens.
