The 15th TCI Annual Global Conference was held in the cities of Bilbao and San Sebastian, Basque Country, Spain, in October 16-19, 2012. Under the theme “Constructing place-based competitiveness in times of global change”, 400+ experts from 52 countries worked towards practical solutions.

The four-day agenda included key elements to understand the actual competitiveness scenario: smart-specialization, the intelligent diversification that creates synergies across different socio-economic activities and that requires new cross-sectoral approaches.

We would like to take this opporunity to Congratulate the TCI’s 15th anniversay. The celebration was held on the occasion of the Annual Global  Conference where, while the gala dinner on 18th of  October,  they reminded some of the milestones along TCI evolution and nice moments experienced in different parts of the world since its foundation in 1998. Once again, congratulations from FEMAC!
