by Gemma Escarré,

The Barcelona Science Park (PCB) closed the activities to celebrate its 20th anniversary with an institutional event chaired by the rector of the University of Barcelona, Joan Elias, on December 21.

The event was attended by more than one hundred people from the worlds of academia, science, business and government. "The PCB is an absolutely exceptional concentration of talent that contributes to creating value in our city and in our country" said Elias.

The PCB is one of Europe's leading scientific, technological and business innovation ecosystems. Currently it has a surface area of 100,000 square metres and a community of 2,700 professionals,  54% of them women, and more than 100 public and private organizations like CataloniaBio & HealthTech.

“Eight years ago, the park had a workforce of 1,300, a figure that has now doubled, and there is still room for growth. Sourcing the funding to fit out new spaces and enable the community to grow to up to 3,500 health professionals is one of the biggest challenges" remarked Maria Terrades, general manager at PCB.
