Donostia-San Sebastián is a service-oriented city focusing in the tertiary sector. It is immersed in an industrial and business tradition and this is why it has centred on knowledge and innovation as a road to the future. The Basque Country is one of the regions in Spain with the highest concentration of industries. Regional institutions are concerned with the promotion and strengthening of local business, encouraging competitiveness by way of research and technological innovation. Proof of this is the foundation of organisations such as the Basque Organisation for Competitive Redevelopment SPRI –the Basque Agency for Innovation-, Innobasque and the Basque Institute for Competitiveness, Orkestra which promote innovation and knowledge-related initiatives.
Donostia-San Sebastián has a powerful business fabric. The companies specialising in new technologies, research and development are mostly based in Ibaeta, the Zuatzu Business Park, or the Miramon Technology Park, which is being extended following a new concept that will integrate businesses, R&D centres, and the university into a single innovation and knowledge centre.
Some of the leading technology companies in Spain, members of the Basque Society of the Electronic Industry, are based in or close to Donostia-San Sebastián.
