Barcelona Co-Innovation Center

We foster innovation, co-creating what is possible with digital transformation and the Internet of Things (IoT). We design game-changing solutions with our premier ecosystem of customers and partners to solve the world’s most challenging business and social challenges.

Driving success with co-innovation

In the digital world, innovators are redefining the landscape of business. Not by incrementally improving products already in the market, but by envisioning entirely new ideas and bringing them to life. That's the commitment of Cisco’s Barcelona Co-Innovation Center.

At the heart of our strategy is identifying key disruptions and transforming them into sustainable opportunities. We know that no single company can do it alone. That's why the Barcelona Co-Innovation Center collaborates closely with regional and global customers, partners, governments, startups, academia, accelerators and developers to imagine and implement breakthroughs that deliver new business models, value propositions, solutions, and services.

The Center

The Barcelona Co-Innovation Center is located in Ca l'Alier, an old factory located in the 22@ district of Barcelona that is an example of a self-sufficient, intelligent and zero-emission building.

We define, prioritize, prototype and co-develop innovations in digital transformation and IoT, for the transportation, manufacturing, retail, energy, smart cities, financial services, education and healthcare industries.

We innovate for a safer and more sustainable connected world.

The center is mainly dedicated to the following activities

Innovation Center Experience

A showcase of innovative solutions from Cisco and its Ecosystem, to show its practical implementation and its ability to improve people's lives.


Companies co-innovate with Cisco to create new solutions and business models based on technology built on the network. Cisco provides labs, facilities, experiences and tutorials to its partner communities, to support innovation and accelerate the development of prototypes and go-to-market solutions. Cisco's involvement brings credibility, expertise, and scalability to locally-grown solutions.

DevNet Hub

We provide a number of workshops through DevNet workshops and Cisco Hackathon Day as well as specialized design and co-development training sessions.


The Barcelona Co-Innovation Center is a critical gateway between Cisco in Spain and our broad ecosystem throughout Europe and around the world to co-create the latest innovative IoT-driven innovations that capture the full value and opportunities of digital transformation.
