We host Sacyr Innovation Summit!

During this event, we presented the finalist proposals from nine innovative agents from seven countries who responded to the three challenges presented in the sixth edition of Sacyr iChallenges. 

We had the participation of companies from seven countries (Spain, the United Kingdom, the USA, Israel, Canada, Norway, and Latvia) who answered Sacyr's call to seek solutions to the challenges proposed in the open innovation program.

Our Chairman, Manuel Manrique, gave the closing speech at the event and emphasized that "open innovation is a path to a future where environmental, social, and economic sustainability is becoming increasingly important."

Excellent Reception

In this edition of iChallenges, we received a total of 205 proposals from 34 countries. After carefully analyzing all the ideas, we selected the nine agents who, with their solutions, best addressed the challenges presented in this program, with a focus on sustainability.

Here are the agents who participated in the Sacyr Innovation Summit and their proposals:

  • Water Challenge: Detection of emerging contaminants.

Selected Proposals: AMS Analytics (USA); Kraken Sense (Canada); Captoplastics (Spain).

  • Road Challenge: Solutions to increase safety and sustainability in our infrastructure.

Selected Proposals: Valerann (United Kingdom); Roadsense (Israel); VeriToll (United States).

  • Construction Challenge: Knowledge of geotechnical and topographic characteristics of the terrain in the early stages of a project.

Selected Proposals: SPH Engineering (Latvia); Lunasonde (United States); Emerald Geomodelling (Norway).

During the Sacyr Innovation Summit, the selected innovative agents participated in in-person sessions to define pilot projects alongside Sacyr experts and presented their projects to the company's senior management.

Additionally, the Sacyr Foundation will recognize some of the solutions presented by the innovative community in Sacyr iChallenges at the 13th Sacyr Innovation Awards.
