Last night the mayor of Sant Cugat, a Strategic Member of Living Labs Global, Lluis Recoder and Vice-Mayor Jordi Joly i Lena were rewarded for the city's effort in the past years to develop a new economic management model for the city. "PACTE" is a strategic agreement between the political and management leadership of the city to use strategic maps and management goals to create a more transparent, efficient and innovative public administration.

The European Public Sector Award, or EPSA, recognised Sant Cugat ahead of national government programmes from Denmark and the UK, as well as the City of Lausanne as the leading European example of "Leadership and Management of Change".


Sant Cugat is a Category Partner for the Living Labs Global Showcase Award, underlining the city's commitment to excellence in management and continuing innovation in the effort to become a sustainable high technology community.
