Sacyr iChallenges extends its deadline to participate in its open innovation program
The Sacyr iChallenges program has extended the deadline for the submission of application proposals to July 26th. All companies, technology companies, universities, joint ventures, research centers, start-ups, etc. that wish to participate in the Sacyr open innovation program can submit their projects in order to solve the following challenges:
● Smart business development: technological solution that brings together the information available through the Web, allowing the early detection of new business opportunities for the turnkey construction of industrial plants.
● Digitization of occupational safety: technological solution that helps construction employees and supervisors prevent occupational safety risks in real time.
● Remote care for dependent people: technological solution with a social emphasis that provides added value by remotely monitoring in real time the routines of dependant people in order to provide welfare to users and tranquility to their families.
● Smart tolls: new means to automatically detect and classify types of vehicles for highway tolls which could streamline the current payment and billing process and add value to users, public administrations and Sacyr.
This initiative is one of the pillars of digital innovation and transformation strategies of the company. For more than a decade, Sacyr has been identifying and developing solutions applicable to its business processes with external innovators.
"At Sacyr we offer a wide range of collaboration opportunities for those agents of the innovative community. We are looking for the best talent in which to promote new ideas that bring added value to citizens by improving their quality of life, with superior infrastructure and urban services", says Diego Rocha, Director of Innovation at Sacyr.
Once the proposals have been sent, they will be studied and evaluated in an evaluation process in which those responsible for the different business areas of the group will participate. Sacyr will select those projects with the best approaches to solve the challenges and will work together to solve them, with mixed teams made up of external agents and business experts from the company.
Sacyr offers the innovative community a unique opportunity to collaborate with its network of customers and suppliers in order to accelerate and scale new business models and new technologies.
In addition to the lines of collaboration that will be developed between the innovative agents and the company, the Sacyr Foundation will recognize, within the framework of the 9th edition of the Sacyr Awards for Innovation, some of the initiatives presented by the innovative community in the iChallenges program.
