Last December, the 2019 Innovate Construction Awards Gala were celebrated, this time, under a different format from previous editions: the awards recognized the trajectories, projects and people who have played a key role in the implementation of Innovation in Ferrovial Agroman throughout all the geographical areas and divisions in the last years.
This year’s campaign slogan was Share2innovate, and this is the main goal we hope to achieve with the awards: make innovation visible and show its positive impact for all the company. Aligned with this idea, we invited all candidates to bring a partner with whom to start spreading their innovation spirit (implementing innovative solutions with colleagues that might not be so involved in this matter, creating synergies and collaborating transversally or becoming the mentor of potential future innovators).
For this edition, 7 award categories were established (Popular vote, Protecting Innovation, Innovative construction solutions, Innovation culture, Sharing knowledge, Digital Leadership, Innovations in Health & Safety), and more than 40 candidates from all geographical areas and divisions were nominated and invited to attend, since the winners were to be revealed live during the Gala.
To all those of you whom I’ve had the pleasure to meet during the event (candidates and winners), I just want to recognize your amazing work and thank you again for your commitment with innovation. Thank you for making it possible with your effort and dedication and your everyday work. I hope this awards’ Gala is helps you to boost and become even better this 2020.
I invite you to spare a few moments of your time to read this INNOVATE publication, which is a fantastic opportunity to have an overall vision of what is being done in terms of innovation and who is playing a leading role in innovation. I hope to count on you in coming editions.
Finally, I take this chance to wish you the best for this new year. I hope to work together with all of you to keep innovation growing in Ferrovial Agroman.
Enjoy the Reading and join this celebration of innovation!
Javier Vaca de Osma, Head of Innovation, Technology and Processes.
