3A.INITIATIVE IMAGE Sarrià-Sant Gervasi, Knowledge District Work was carried out on the initiative's image throughout 2013, during which a logo and its colours were designed. A dossier/leaflet was also put together with information on the initiative, to be used by participants in the activities carried out. Page:20
3B.DISTRICT CENSUS AND ECONOMIC ACTIVITIES Alongside the initiative, a census and a study of businesses in the Sarrià-Sant Gervasi District is being carried out to find our what knowledge-intensive economic activities are taking place at present. This information is being collected by means of an economic activity assessment survey, based on a representative sample of businesses. A special study is also being carried out of businesses with more than 100 workers which, because of their turnover, have a relatively large influence on the district's business structure and on all the strategic sectors identified in the district, such as education and health. This information will help to define the strategy better and monitor the development of knowledge-intensive economic activity in the district better, to achieve the initiative's long-term goals.
