International participation has increased by 20%, with proposals from up to 34 different countries like Spain, Chile, the United States, Colombia, Israel, Finland, the United Kingdom, Sweden, Italy, South Korea, or Ireland. The call has made its way to countries as varied as Gabon, Tunisia, or China, which shows the international nature of the initiative.

Sacyr iChallenges is one of the drivers in Sacyr’s innovation and transformation strategy. With this open innovation program, Sacyr looks for new partners with whom to promote sustainable solutions that help improve the quality of life of citizens through better infrastructures and services.

Four challenges on sustainability

The four challenges of this edition of Sacyr iChallenges are focused on making some of Sacyr’s key activities more sustainable. The challenges are: to promote the sustainable urban mobility, maximize renewable energy use; recovery of new materials; and reduce the carbon footprint in construction activities.

The next phase of the process will be the evaluation of all the proposals received by the people in charge of the different business areas of Sacyr.

The iChallenges program finalizes with the celebration of the Sacyr Innovation Summit, which will take place in November, at the company's headquarters in Madrid. At this event, the selected innovative agents will publicly present their initiatives to solve the four challenges.

In addition, the Sacyr Foundation will recognize, as part of the 12th Edition of the Sacyr Innovation Awards, some of the solutions presented by the innovation community in Sacyr iChallenges.

To date, Sacyr iChallenges has received a total of more than 1,250 proposals from all over the world to solve the challenges that have arisen in each of the editions, promoting different projects. This capacity for implementation is what has consolidated the program as a reference in innovation in the infrastructure and services sector, where it is challenging to innovate.
