BFF Quarterly Series - Macro Outlook in 4Q 2021: a much slower recovery than initially estimated

The report titled “Macro Outlook in 4Q 2021: a much slower recovery than initially estimated” provides a detailed reflection on the upcoming challenges for the Spanish economy and for business based on a rising inflation and the status of growth of the economy, which, despite its positive trajectory since the onset of the pandemic, has not yet reached the expected rhythm of recovery according to European authorities and against the estimates initially provided by the Government and AIReF. 
The Spanish economy is recovering from the deep recession caused by the COVID pandemic. Timely and decisive policy support has helped protect jobs, household incomes, and firm balance sheets. A highly successful vaccination campaign, with almost 90 percent of the target population now fully vaccinated, helped limit the impact of infections on hospitalizations, mobility, and economic activity in 2021. Employment has rebounded robustly and is already above pre-crisis levels. After falling by 10,8 percent in 2020, economic growth resumed in the second quarter of this year, although output remains well below its pre-pandemic level, in part due to the lingering impact of the pandemic on contact-intensive sectors and persistent global supply bottlenecks.

BFF announces a new project to promote italian contemporary art

BFF is proud to announce the launch of the project ART FACTOR – The Pop Legacy in Post-War Italian Art, which takes its initial form in the book of the same name, published by Skira editore Milan Genève Paris, and in a website showcasing the collection; the next phase of the project will see the collection being exhibited across Europe.
The project features a selection of works by Italian artists, taken from the private contemporary art collection of Farmafactoring Foundation. The collection is an homage to the art of the second half of the twentieth century, and has also been an integral part of the history and growth of the group that has assembled it over the years.
It was specifically the art factor that – more than twenty years ago – provided the genesis for what was to become a collection of over 250 artworks, spanning the years from the immediate post-war period right through to the early 2000s, created by artists such as Valerio Adami, Enrico Baj, Alberto Burri, Hsiao Chin, Mario Schifano, Arnaldo Pomodoro and Joe Tilson.
The project takes in a selection of works that describe the Italian path through Pop Art, as embodied by the output of Valerio Adami, Franco Angeli, Enrico Baj, Lucio Del Pezzo,Gianfranco Pardi, Mario Schifano and Emilio Tadini. From the mid-1960s onwards, these artists engaged with a longstanding iconographic tradition, re-casting and transcending the avant-gardes and stylistic techniques of the past, while making use of a rich variety of resources, often deployed for purposes of social and cultural activism.
Indeed, the art book and the artworks themselves tell this very story: the desire to be active participants in – not spectators to – those initiatives that create value for society. Under the curatorship of Maria Alicata, the catalogue and the project itself encapsulate all of the most important moments in the collection’s history: from its origins, with Lucio Fontana, Alberto Burri, Enrico Baj and Giacomo Balla, to the Pop Art legacy, with Valerio Adami, Emilio Tadini,Gianfranco Pardi and Lucio Del Pezzo.
Thanks to this initiative, the collection – which has its permanent home in the Milan headquarters of BFF – will become an exhibition that will tour across Europe in 2021-22, visiting cities including Athens, Lisbon, Madrid, Paris, Warsaw and Milan, thus covering most of the countries in which the group is currently operational.

The Ribera Group promotes a line of cosmetic services with a special focus on the Hair Transplant Unit

The Ribera healthcare group has set up a new line of services, Ribera Aesthetics, in Ribera Polusa (Lugo) y Ribera Santa Justa (Villanueva de la Serena) hospital, with a special focus on this initial phase for the Hair Transplant Unit. This new area will include cosmetic medicine and surgery and cosmetic treatment services, with all the assurance that a multi-disciplinary team implies, and with the majority of healthcare professionals present, as well as their hospitals' surgical and medical equipment.
The hair transplant unit, which now attends to patients in both centers, is highly specialized, has certified, renowned professionals, and carries out these interventions with cutting-edge techniques, which provide a definitive solution in 98 percent of cases of androgenetic alopecia, both in men and women. Doctor Carlos Caballero leads this Hair Transplant Unit whose objective is, as he explains, “to help correct alopecia, baldness or the loss of thickness, both in men and women, with implants, since they are a very efficient, definitive solution and they provide a high level of patient satisfaction”. Doctor Caballero points out that, although there is a significant percentage of male patients, “androgenetic alopecia in women is very frequent, with a significant genetic component, but in addition, they tend to suffer from more noticeable psychological consequences than men”. 
The Ribera group's hospitals' Hair Transplant Unit provides a free initial consultation and guarantees that you are placed in the hands of a qualified professional. Doctor Caballero warns of the dangers of intrusiveness in this discipline and places value on the high level of specialization of this unit in the Ribera group's hospitals. “We sometimes have to fix real disasters, when patients put themselves in the hands of fake specialists”, he affirms, whilst reminding us that a hair transplant is a surgical act, which requires a specialist, nursing staff and specific equipment.

Ribera is incorporated into Lanzadera's new Health Innovation Hub and sets two start-up challenges with Amazon and IBM

The Ribera healthcare group has set their two first technological challenges of Lanzadera's new Health Innovation Hub, aimed at looking for creative, practical and viable startup solutions regarding “remote hospitals”, together with Amazon e IBM, which act as facilitators, providing their technology and knowledge in order to generate solutions with a very wide scope.
Within this concept of “remote hospital” we can find all of those applications that, using Artificial Intelligence, IoT (The Internet of Things), voice technology or natural language processing, enable improvements to the monitoring of patients and communication with them, without them needing to go to the hospital, as well as the development of predictive models for early diagnosis.
Ribera has experience with applications that take healthcare to where the patient needs it, after developing pilot startup projects in their hospitals, chosen together with Lanzadera in their corporate program. Now, within this Hub, they have gone one step further by having technology facilitators, such as Amazon Alexa and IBM, which will give support to new projects. Furthermore, the technology affiliate of the group, futuRS, has developed predictive models, such as that which warns of Covid patients that may end up in ICU, in order to bring forward decision making and avoid any deterioration.

The post-vaccination test is a simple and painless test. The Ribera Lab professionals take a standard blood sample, like in a blood test, as they only need a milliliter of serum.
Results are available 48 hours after the blood draw. And, in addition, it is not necessary to fast before the test because food consumption does not interfere with the result.
The Ribera Lab centers that carry out this type of test are located at the Immunological Centre of San Juan (Alicante), and at Ribera Polusa, Ribera Santa Justa and Ribera Almendralejo hospital, in the provinces of Lugo and Badajoz respectively.

Google gives a Digital Digital Boost ’for the economic recovery of Spain

The situation caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, with the lockdown of the population and the forced closure of businesses, has put many companies in an unprecedented situation. At the same time, staying at home has reinforced the fundamental role that technology plays in our lives, accelerating the trends that we hoped to incorporate in a much longer period of time. However, only 14% of SMBs have a digitization plan. The keys to recovery and to face future challenges are to accelerate a transformation that allows companies to diversify their services, find new sources of income and be prepared for a new normality where digital will be essential. 

For this reason, Google Spain has announced its collaboration with the Ministry of Industry, Commerce and Tourism to launch 'Impulso Digital', a campaign that seeks to support Spanish companies in their digitization, especially SMBs, in addition to promoting national and international tourism and digital training.

The project also includes the "Digital Impulse platform with Google" (link:, which brings together free tools, guides and training aimed at the development of companies and professionals on a single website.

This initiative is part of the commitment that Google has announced this July 1 (link:  to help 10 million people and companies to go digital and grow in Europe, the Middle East and Africa over the next 18 months.
