Granada is the capital city of the eponymous province in the autonomous community of Andalusia in the south of Spain. Granada's digital transformation is not starting from scratch: already before participating in the DCC, its digital economy accounted for over 7% of the GDP of its province (higher than the national average of 5.6%). Coupled with the importance of its ICT, biotechnology and health industries, it is safe to say that Granada is one of Spain’s digital hot spots.
Granada also stands out as one of the few places in Spain where the private sector is more digitally advanced than the public one, with its businesses leading the process of digitalisation. Here, local, provincial and regional administrations have joined forces to reduce the differential speed in digitalisation and implemented in 2017, the Granada Human SmartCity project. This “digital reinvention” project, has the potential to make an important impact on Granada’s GDP and will help the city achieve its ambition of becoming an internationally recognised player in the fields of ICT, health and biotechnology.
Granada aims to become an international reference in creativity and wellness and as the main regional pole for the development of innovative solutions.
