Firma acuerdo Orkestra y GFA Zubigintza 2017

The Provincial Council of Gipuzkoa and Orkestra have signed the agreement which falls within the “Zubigintza" Project and aims to lend continuity to the action-research project on the basis of new governance and economic promotion policies.

The Provincial Council of Gipuzkoa and Orkestra-Basque Institute of Competitiveness have formalised a strategic collaboration agreement to provide continuity for the Zubigintza-Action research laboratory project. The agreement was signed by the President of the Provincial Council of Gipuzkoa, Markel Olano, and the President of Orkestra, Ignacio Mª Echeberria, and will be effective throughout 2017.

The project will have two main lines of action: on the one hand, support in the construction and revitalisation of policies to support small companies, based on a new model of governance and of collaboration between different agents in the territories. On the other, study and research with regard to the challenges facing Gipuzkoa in the future, within the framework of territorial development. Both lines of work are based on the methodology of action research.

The renewal of these lines of work involves reinforcement of the collaboration between both institutions in the sphere of economic promotion and of policies to stimulate the development of the entire territory.
