Despite having been a difficult year for all innovation ecosystem agents, Sacyr iChallenges has closed the solution identification phase with a total of 245 proposals for the four challenges issued by the company in this call
We have received ideas from 25 countries: Spain, the United States, Australia, Canada, the United Kingdom, Italy, Israel, Germany, Portugal, or Perú, among others.
Sacyr iChallenges is one of Sacyr’s pillars of innovation and digital transformation, based on the bet on teamwork and co-creation with the innovation ecosystem internationally
With this open innovation program, we are looking for travel companions with whom to promote sustainable solutions that help improve the quality of life of citizens by improved infrastructures and services.
In this fourth edition of the program, we have put the focus on promoting sustainability, a key pillar of its 2021-2025 Sustainable Sacyr Action Plan. With this plan, Sacyr commits to fighting against climate change with a significant increase in innovation investment to protect the environment.
The challenges of this fourth edition of Sacyr iChallenges are focused on sustainability. These challenges answer to four needs of the company’s business units: generation of clean energy, measuring Sacyr’s environmental impact, more energetically efficient Universities, and optimizing stock control operations.
At Sacyr Innovation Summit, an event that will take place at Sacyr’s corporate headquarters in Madrid, the selected innovation agents will publicly present their solution initiatives to the challenges issued by the company.
Furthermore, the Sacyr Foundation will recognize, as part of the 11th edition of the Sacyr Innovation Awards, some of the initiatives submitted by the innovating community as part of the Sacyr iChallenges program.
