New Innovation Policy

2010 saw the consolidation of Ferrovial’s innovation strategy, laying the foundations for identifying and launching innovative projects with a global scope and the involvement of all business areas.

This consolidation is reflected in the development of the “IN-novation IN-motion IN-Ferrovial” seal, which seeks to unify the messages of innovation under a single brand and thus reinforce their strategic importance for Ferrovial.

The innovation policy is divided into three levels:

  • A strategy that seeks to combine the innovation management models of the business areas to establish the best practices and address future challenges.
  • An innovation community for identifying those individuals with responsibility in this area and fostering an appropriate cultural climate.
  • Necessary resources (information, funding, vehicles) for supporting the innovation model in Ferrovial’s businesses. This level includes, among others, the creation of CI3 and the Centers for Excellence in Asset Management and Transportation, the partnership agreement with MIT and the participation in the 7th Framework Program of the European Union.
