The Observatory of Trends in Metropolitan Economy is the result of collaboration between Institut Cerdà and the Metropolitan Area of Barcelona (AMB) that aims to support the study and strategic analysis of trends, challenges, opportunities and positioning for the promotion of economic development in the Metropolitan Area.
Institut Cerdà works on the elaboration of reports on trends in the Metropolitan Economy. These are grouped in a set of resources to support the study and strategic analysis of Trends, Challenges, Opportunities and Positioning (TCOP) of the economy with the ultimate aim of the promotion of metropolitan economic development.
The reports aim to identify and evaluate the main economic dynamics of mainstream activities in terms of regional and urban economic development and to put all the knowledge generated at the service of the socioeconomic agents in the metropolitan area. These reports are grouped into three types (on trends, on in depth factors and on sectors) that are published periodically. The titles published so far include: Present and future of the industry 4.0; The entrepreneurial ecosystem and technology transfer; The communication infrastructures in 5G cities, and the Commerce Sector.
