The Fundación Metrópoli was an early pioneer of large scale strategies for spatial developments, often achieved in collaboration with city and regional governments. For over two decades, FM has been actively involved in developing spatial strategies for the Basque Country, using the strength of its complementary city network as a basis for new and innovative developments. As a consequence, the Fundación Metrópoli has contributed to regional development strategies at the international level, as well as at the Spanish autonomous region and province levels.
