The aim of the PECT ININVallès project is to lead Sabadell and its surrounding municipalities to become a reference territory within the European Union in terms of smart specialization, and Aretian will deploy its original methodology to enable the project to reach this goal. In the words of the Sabadell City Council, “Aretian is a Start-Up led by a team of Harvard researchers, Jeremy Burke and Ramon Gras, who seek solutions to social challenges in a sustainable way in any territory based on scientific rigor. Its aim is to evaluate the impact of the PECT ININVallès from three complex systems; talent, organizational structures, and urban design.”


The PECT ININVallès Project represents an investment of 3.3 million euros, 7 partner entities, and 5 operations. It aims at promoting research, technological development, and innovation in a transversal way for companies and key players for the innovative ecosystem of Sabadell and Catalunya.
