About the initiative
Barcelona Digital Talent promotes the competitiveness of the market by working to reduce the current gap in digital talent.
With the goal of positioning Barcelona as a talent capital, the program promotes professionals’ reskilling in digital competences and seeks to attract new professionals in the market both locally and internationally.
Traditional professions are evolving towards digital professions
By 2025, 50% of today’s professions will cease to exist as we know them. The economy’s evolution towards digital models has sped up the demand for new professional profiles, which poses a new challenge to the job market.
