Applied research to craft a model of real sustainability

The Ebro Bioterritory Living Lab has been set up to meet the need to fashion and roll out a new model of governance and territory which protects the Ebro Delta by bringing on board all the socioeconomic sectors which are part of the natural area

Transformative change

We draw on participatory tools to redefine, co-create and plan initiatives addressing the Ebro Delta’s sustainability and resilience

Projects with potential

We combine a number of schemes which engage all nature players, from agriculture and tourism to marine and coastal ecosystems

Consensus with stakeholders

We put in place the mechanisms required to reach a consensus on an ecological transition with all the stakeholders and people involved

The Ebro Delta, an area in a climatic emergency

The Ebro Delta is one of the most important natural areas on the Catalan coastline and also one of the most vulnerable ecosystems due to its scarcity of water and sediments.

Marine regressionsubsidencesalinisationwater stress and biodiversity loss are just some of the effects triggered by the impact of climate change which have had the greatest ramifications in the region.

Global warming’s footprint is a crucial factor in the Delta’s agriculture and biodiversity, severely impairing its economic activity.

Managing and reaching a consensus on a plan which redefines a new sustainable territorial model is critical to ensuring the Delta’s survival


A venue for participatory innovation to tackle climate change

We seek to bring about and foster transformative territorial change rooted in effective sustainability. To achieve this, we have drawn up two main interrelated work strands

Socioeconomic community

We trigger the mechanisms for shifting towards a more socially and environmentally fair post-growth model


We strive to restore and conserve ecosystems by tapping nature-based solutions

Key projects and initiatives

The Bioresilmed project is designed to unlock the bioeconomy and climate resilience in Mediterranean landscapes anchored in scientific knowledge and co-design with socioeconomic stakeholders.

The Living Lab works for shared development of new business models addressing the bioeconomy by leveraging the restoration of natural heritage and driving resilient traditional activities.

The REST-COAST project aims to demonstrate the pivotal role of coastal restoration as a carbon footprint minimisation solution for climate adaptation. It targets mitigating disaster risk in threatened coastal systems while enhancing their biodiversity and ecosystem service provision.

The Living Lab is involved in setting up a new governance venue in which a number of key stakeholders are engaged in seeking and building consensus in coastal restoration.

The CLIMAS project supports a transition towards climate resilience by co-designing an innovative, problem-oriented climate adaptation toolkit. This toolkit is based on applying values, design thinking methods and citizen science mechanisms.

The Living Lab is co-creating a citizen science tool for climate assemblies.

The Ebro Bioterritory Specialisation and Competitiveness Project (PECT) fosters systemic transition towards a model of sustainable use of natural capital by assembling a stable innovation environment across les Terres de l’Ebre.

The Living Lab is part of one of the PECT’s key goals as it is the flagship physical facility in the region where research activities are to be conducted under a scientific and multi-actor approach.

The IMPETUS project seeks to fast-track Europe’s response to climate change and turn commitments into tangible actionsby rolling out innovation measures to make its regions more resilient.


The Business and Climate Foundation (FEC) visits Eurecat Amposta and the Climate Resilience Centre (CRC)

Last Friday, 9 June, Eurecat Amposta welcomed executives from several Business and Climate Foundation (FEC) member companies. Eurecat and the FEC work together on climate resilience by identifying and delivering solutions for businesses to address climate change. Attendees included firms such as Fluidra, Hera, Baleària, ACS Recycling Electronics, Sorigué and Borges. Eurecat also presented its…
