The Innovation Plan for Transport and Infrastructures 2018-2020, framed within the Europe 2020 Strategy and the 2017-2020 State Plan for Scientific, Technical and Innovation Research, aims at coordinating and integrating the innovation activities of the companies and institutions of the Fomento Group. The plan also seeks to promote open innovation, reinforcing collaboration with universities and the private sector.
The actions and initiatives presented in this plan are based on four strategic areas or dimensions: Digitalisation, Internet of the future, Intermodality and Energy transformation.
The Ministry of Public Works assumes these aspects as a key challenge, defining from them the strategic axes and lines of the plan. As a last level of disaggregation, the strategic lines are broken down into 70 initiatives that will extend from 2018 to 2020.
