Fostering Innovation

The company keeps an open and innovative attitude for observing and identifying opportunities and trends and discovering the development status of new business and service models and their progress in order to come across new ideas that can meet the demands of the market and customers. Naturgy promotes various initiatives that foster entrepreneurship and the development of innovative projects within the company and in partnership with external stakeholders capable of accelerating the development of new products and services that are considered of interest to the group.

Open Innovation

Naturgy is undertaking a far-reaching change and therefore increases its resources in all areas of innovation, especially its commitment to the open innovation strategy. This is a new model for building relationships between companies and external players such as universities, start-ups, researchbodies, entrepreneurs and public authorities in order to foster collaboration and the exchange of ideas.
 

Accelerator programmes

Naturgy has launched various programmes aimed at identifying, promoting and accelerating the development of new products and services that meet the future needs of the company and help it respond to challenges in the sector.

The development of these programmes includes participation from market experts and consultants from all areas of the company. These programmes have created an advantage for the company by providing solutions in products and services from the company that help its businesses become more efficient, reducing the “time to market” for new products and services.

Sponsorship


Besides the spaces created through open innovation, we complement our search for start-ups with other activities such as meetings and events to find out about new start-ups and entrepreneurs. This helps us to identify trends and partnerships that may be of interest or use in their businesses and to promote sponsorship and involvement in open innovation initiatives.
