Innovating beyond the company's structure

We promote disruptive technologies and new businesses that help us provide solutions to current and future challenges

OPEN AND COLLABORATIVE INNOVATION

Innovating beyond the company's structure, working hand-in-hand with third parties to develop innovative technologies.

ACCIONA advocates an open collaboration model to bolster the sustainability of its businesses and to harness external technological perspectives that enrich its knowledge and promote innovation and sustainable development. All of this is part of our I'MNOVATION initiative, which is the backbone of the company's innovative and creative structure.
