  • Abstract The political and economic environment has transformed due to trends in globalization, cities has gone beyond national boundaries and became the most important nodes in the network of global affiares, and unfold its power and influence. Cities around the world are eager to learn from banchmark cities, and look for appropriate narratives that brings the driving force for innovation. After examining theories and city models, scholars have proposed that city innovation derives from education and knowledge. The current research aims to explore a “knowledge-based” concept of a city, how it transforms and shapes into a future knowledge city. Based on the case of Barcelona, which positioned itself as the “City of Knowledge” with its advantages in cultural and arts. The 22@Barcelona Project was implemented in Poblenou since 2000. It is aimed to become the new model for knowledge cities, by planning and promoting the 5 strategic industry clusters: media, ICT, energy, Med Tech and design. These clusters are designed through five nodes, which are “the government, educational and research institutions, corporate companies, financial institutions and intermediaries mechanism”. The city attracts talents by its government, educational and research institutions, corporate companies and intermediary institutions; and retains talents through the government, financial institutions, corporate companies and intermediary institutions. The cluster networks link local university campuses with research institutes, build up a supportive environment for innovation and entrepreneurs; intermediary institutions are established by the public or private enterprises, join efforts in projects such as intellectual property and technology transfer, employment promotion and international investment. In addition, Barcelona is enthusiastically developing into an international convention and exhibition center, bidding for international events related to urban strategy and knowledge innovation, for example the Mobile World Congress 2014, in order to make Barcelona a global attraction for knowledge workers.
