Re-launched in 2011 under the leadership of Fomento de San Sebastian, Know Cities is an European project that aims to ease transition to the knowledge economy, as a mean to facilitate the transnational cooperation in common matters, linked to the sustainable urban development as an attractive and urban marketing factor for the Atlantic Arc Cities. Through the development, the experimentation and the validation of quality models and managing methodologies of the knowledge, all applied to the local and transnational fields, KNOW CITIES is set to improve the cities’ competitiveness through excellence plans.
Under the heading “Success Factors in Knowledge Economy in the medium and small cities”, last December, Know Cities partners met in San Sebastian, in a gathering intended to introduce comparative studies of diagnostic tests that have been carried out in each of the territories in relation to economy and growth. The representatives of the different locations also formed a roundtable with experts in the knowledge economy and other factors that favor the transformation of innovation into economic growth.
