Pilot 1

Community of Cantabria

Cantabria in northern Spain is a region which is relatively smaller and less populated than peer Spanish regions.

As a moderate innovator, the region is however experienced in industrial development. While there are strong traditional sectors of the region that rely on manufacturing and automotive industries, emerging sectors of the region in the renewable energy and marine technologies are the route through which Cantabria will transition towards a low-carbon economy while enjoying a buoyant innovation ecosystem 

As part of TetRRIs, Cantabria will bring RRI dimensions (gender equality and public engagement) to integrate with its regional innovation strategies as far as industrial change and culture (axis1) and technology and knowledge (axis 2) are concerned.
