The deadline for submitting nominations to the headquarters of the Spanish Space Agency ends on Monday, November 7th. Seville formalized its own last Friday with the “illusion” of convincing the Commission created by the Spanish Government that Seville’s option to house the headquarters of this government body, calculated by the City Council, was the most “solid and high quality”. It will create an indirect economic impact of 360 million euros and around 6,000 jobs. A ‘business’ that will benefit the capital of Seville, but in the approval of the submission of the nomination by the General Assembly, it will, in the words of Mayor Antonio Muñoz, “spread” all over Andalusia.

With more than 240 support from public and private institutions and the support of more than 14,000 people, Sevilla’s proposal is based on “ten reasons”, one of the strongest in capital’s innovative potential since 72% of all organizations. In Andalusia (64 of the current 153 people) of this nature is located in the capital of Andalusia. The physical headquarters is another entity.

The City Council chose a building that was already built and at full capacity – meeting the technical requirements that the Government had identified as an extra to be considered “very positive” – with more than 3,000 square feet of boardroom, parking and state-of-the-art rooms – and one of the most popular working-class neighbourhoods. one in San Jerónimo (which is also the regional cohesion criterion to be evaluated by the evaluation commission). The center is fifteen minutes from the Aeropolis Aerospace Park and five minutes from the Cartuja Technological Science Park, which is considered “additions” when necessary.

Thanks to the agreement with four financial institutions, it will offer “advantageous conditions” for rent or property to the families of 60 people who will make up the workforce.

On the aforementioned merits, the Government “makes it clear that the nomination would be very favorably viewed if accompanied by a report by the Autonomous Community Governing Council supporting its eligibility. Where more than one nomination is put forward, this report should specify the order of preference for each of the settlements in question”.

This step was completed by the Government of the Junta of Andalucía, which chose Seville as its first option, as it then realized that Huelva was “more in line with the above requirements”.
