The Autonomous University of Barcelona hosts the meeting of the Executive Committee of the Association Ambit B30

During the meeting the status and evolution of the first strategic projects promoted by the Association were closely analysed, such as the Advanced manufacturing hub in B30, coordinated by ICN2.

The meeting, led by Josep Monras, President of the Association Ambit B30 and Mayor of Mollet, offered an overview on the status of the different projects that the association is promoting. It also became a forum to discuss the working agenda developed by the Executive Committee for the next Association’s General Council meeting, to be held in September.

During the meeting the status and evolution of the first strategic projects promoted by the Association were closely analysed, such as the Advanced manufacturing hub in B30 which is coordinated by the Institut Catala de Nanociencia i Nanotecnologia (ICN2 - Catalan Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology), ASCAMM Foundation, the UAB Research Park, the Chamber of Commerce of Sabadell and UPIC. Through the development and commercialization of new biosensors, this initiative aims to creating a node of excellence in advanced production which allows the ability to manufacture high-tech products, the introduction of innovative techniques in the production and the development of new manufacturing processes and technologies. The aim is to strengthen the existing industry, creating new industry and attracting international collaborations.

B30 is made up of 23 local councils in a group that has identified the potential of the area and aims to promote its development in a joint strategy between companies, research centres, universities, local councils, business organisations, trade union and governing organisations. The final goal is acting together to strengthen the industrial and technological region and position it as one with most potential for innovation in Catalonia, Spain and aim to place it among the best in southern Europe.
