Acciona has selected eight startup companies — Smallmatek, Goi, Hemav, Kineo, Mytra, Smartive, Be More 3D and Artelnics — to take part in the first version of the corporate accelerator within its I'MNOVATION open innovation programme.

The eight companies, selected out of a field of 100 companies, will have support, mentoring and funding from Acciona to pilot test their technologies by utilising them in a real situation in an Acciona project.

In addition, these companies will benefit from fast-track procurements, which will spur the launch of the pilot tests and the commercial relationship with Acciona.

These eight startups, selected by 50 executives from Acciona's business areas — construction, services, water, renewable energy, etc. — proposed innovative technological solutions that can be implemented in the short-medium term in the company's projects.

The innovations revolve around challenges proposed by Acciona, which run across big data, drones, 3D printing, robotics and machine learning, which will then be used to carry out predictive maintenance, optimise asset management, build smart networks, improve infrastructure construction and maintenance processes, automate plants or develop new materials.
