 10 aniversario evento agenda



Orkestra-Basque Institute of Competitiveness is celebrating its tenth anniversary. During these ten years the Institute has had the opportunity to promote and participate in different initiatives, analyses and projects in order to contribute to the development of the competitiveness of the territory.

Orkestra, an innovative initiative promoted by the University of Deusto, has become a reference for cooperation between public and private institutions that have a shared interest in activating research and knowledge in order to spur the future development of our economy and industry.

In the context of this anniversary, Orkestra is organising different initiatives which will culminate on November 21 in an event that will take place in the Kursaal of Donostia. As well as presenting the Orkestra Case prepared by the Harvard Business School, we will also have the opportunity to share some ideas and reflections regarding the main challenges for the future from a territorial, economic and social perspective.
