Historically, innovation is produced in companies and is a consequence of R&D activity (Technological Innovation), innovation focused on products and processes (leadership of R&D units, engineering departments, technical offices…). Later, innovation took place in companies, but it could be technological (product and process) or non-technological (organisation and commercialisation/marketing) (leadership of the innovation manager, quality management, etc.). Now, people innovate, not only in companies, but also in Public Administrations and, in general, in all economic and social spheres with the aim of facing future challenges. This session will analyse a fundamental factor of the commitment of this Congress, the real change in the construction sector.
