Currently, the Navarre Permanent Office to the European Union has the mission of representing, defending and promoting the interests of the autonomous region before European Union institutions. Its main objective is to make it easier for the foral government to open up to Europe and do the same for companies, SMEs, public corporations, technology centres, chambers of commerce, universities, municipal governments, associations, NGOs and, in short, all of Navarran society. The Office’s team is made up of two people with several interns assisting each year.
Navarra is a key player in the production of new systems for electric and connected mobility, with a sustainable value chain, integrating its capacity in renewable energies, and being recognised as an innovative region for experimentation.
Navarra is one of the leading agri-food regions, with entities throughout the value chain, a wide variety of agricultural resources, freezing and canning companies, 4th and 5th range processing companies, many of which count with international experience.
Navarra is a benchmark in renewable energies, mainly in wind energy, where it has leading companies in the distribution and manufacture of wind turbines, as well as companies throughout the value chain and two reference entities in R&D for the sector.
Navarra is a pioneer at the national level in the approval of a Comprehensive Strategy for Personalised Medicine integrating the fields of health, innovation and economic development. It is emerging as one of the most dynamic Biomedical clusters in Spain and among the technological fields with a very high rate of specialization, food chemistry, pharmaceutical products and biotechnology stand out.
Navarra stands out for the variety and beauty of its landscapes, the range of leisure activities and its gastronomy. It is a region recognized for its offer in rural tourism and sustainability.
Navarra, due to the variety of its landscape, is an ideal region to attract filming and promote an industry that, in addition to content, can serve large operators. At the same time, animation companies are emerging that are closely aligned with audiovisual trends.
