OPEN AND COLLABORATIVE INNOVATION

Innovating beyond the structure of the company, working hand-in-hand with the best talent to develop innovative technologies and helping transform ACCIONA's businesses and those of our customers.

ACCIONA defends an open collaboration model to underpin the sustainability of its businesses and to enrich knowledge by assimilating external technological perspectives that promote innovation and sustainable development. All of this is part of ACCIONA's I'MNOVATION initiative, the backbone of the company's innovative and creative structure, by articulating co-creation between ACCIONA's businesses and the entrepreneurial ecosystem.

    #STARTUPS

    ACCIONA is driving an Open Innovation programme to accelerate innovation in the age of disruption. It is the first corporate accelerator for infrastructure and renewable energy start-ups in Spain. Through open and collaborative innovation, ACCIONA is exploring the co-creation of solutions and new sustainable value propositions within the context of the company's strategic challenges and the challenges of the company's different business units by combining internal knowledge and the capabilities provided by the best start-ups. The start-ups participating in the I'MNOVATION programme co-develop pilot projects with company experts for three months for validation in real market environments, a period during which they benefit from collaboration, mentoring and funding from ACCIONA.
