Specific solutions sought that could help to achieve these goals include, but are not limited to: • Offsite prefabrication • Modular construction • Alternative building materials • Building Information Modelling • 3D printing • Mobile based solutions This technology request is an innovation challenge and is published on an open innovation platform until 29/03/2019. If an organization does express interest before that date, it will be guided towards this open innovation platform to apply directly. After that date, the Spanish company will select the companies with whom they would like to cooperate. The cooperation will be in the framework of a technical cooperation agreement. Other types of cooperation could be considered. Once the challenge is closed, expressions of interest for this technology request will be treated in the traditional way.

How it works

  • Tell us about yourself
  • We’ll discuss with you
  • We put the right partners in touch

EEN help you find the right partner, rather than you going it alone.

Our role is to review and collate the most suitable submissions, and then send them to the client who posted the opportunity. We consult with you, and the client, to make the process professional and easy.

These are live opportunities. Your registration of interest on the site is just like a professional approach to a business at a networking event. To stand the best chance of success, make your submission really sing. Sell why the client who posted the opportunity should work with you. Excite them. Ask questions. Try and avoid copy and pasting words from elsewhere.

Once the client has chosen their partner, we'll introduce them over email and keep in touch with both parties to see how it's going. Sometimes things progress quickly. Sometimes because of changing priorities for either party, things progress slowly, but you never know - your next big business break could start right here.
