Sacyr iChallenges 6 is now live

Today we announced the launch of the 6th edition of our open innovation program, Sacyr iChallenges. This initiative encompasses innovation, technology, and cooperation to answer to three business challenges issued by Sacyr, in collaboration with members of the innovation community.

Sacyr iChallenges 6 focuses once again in promoting sustainability, a pivotal aspect of the 2021-2025 Sacyr Sustainable Action Plan. This edition of the program issues three challenges to answer to the following needs of the business units:

  • Linear infrastructure adaptation to new transport models. How to build, adapt and operate safer, more attractive, and better-prepared roads for a more sustainable and interconnective mobility?
  • New solutions to detect and monitor pollutants in water treatment facilities. How to optimize the detection and monitoring of priority and concern-raising pollutants in water treatment facilities?
  • Innovative solutions to anticipate a project’s design parameters: geotechnical campaigns, topography, bathymetry and object detection. How to obtain accurate and trust-worthy automated information in early project stages to design and build more efficiently while causing minimal impact?

Key dates and selection criteria

This Sacyr iChallenges 6 call is open until May 18 on the program website. Once the deadline is closed, a committee of Sacyr professionals and experts will analyze all submissions in close cooperation with the company’s corporate innovation team.

The next stop is Focus Week, a meeting that gathers the pre-selected innovation agents and business experts to discuss and analyze the most viable solutions.

At Sacyr Innovation Summit, an event that will take place in October at the company's headquarters in Madrid. The selected innovation agents will take part in in-person sessions to define pilot projects along with Sacyr experts and will have the opportunity to showcase their submissions to the company’s top management.

In addition, the Sacyr Foundation will recognize, as part of the 13th Edition of the Sacyr Innovation Awards, some of the solutions presented by the innovation community in Sacyr iChallenges.
