Digital economy

This is the set of strategies that propel us towards insertion in the digital world, migrating towards an economy in which the use of information technologies is generalised in all economic, cultural and social activities.

Also in line with the smart specialisation strategy, digital technologies are considered essential as Key Enabling Technologies (KETs), thanks to their effect on productivity and growth. But their involvement does not stop there. They act as a vector of social transformation with effects and consequences on all walks of life.

The so-called Digital Economy potentially includes all economic activities, with the result that more and more activities assume a digital role, and it becomes a lever for innovation, competitiveness and growth.

Bilbao is committed to working on the creation of favourable contexts for the digital economy, and on maximising the opportunities offered by digitalisation for the economy, industry and employment.
