Description

Innovation is the process that converts new knowledge into new products and services. It constitutes one of the two fundamental supports of the companies' competitiveness. Construction is a very important activity in Spain, but companies of the construction industry invert very little compared to other industrial activities. Due to this fact, the R&D&i's investment in the Spanish construction industry is eight times less than the average of the EU-15. One of the reasons that explicate this situation is the current systemization scarcity of innovation; however, when there is innovation, it concentrates mainly in the constructive procedures to solve specific problems.
Nowadays, innovation is not considered an art any more, but a manageable process. The standardization of innovation allows the increase of innovation's effectiveness and efficiency, reducing risks and supporting companies to recover their initial investments with high speed. Spain is positioned in an inflexion point produced by the beginning of standardization and certification of innovative projects and innovation management. This article describes the most important requirements related to innovation projects stated in the UNE 166001 standard, and those requirements of the UNE 166002 standard related to the management of R&D&i.
The most important conclusion is that the standardization of the innovation in the Spanish construction industry can be very effective in order to systemize new knowledge into new constructive procedures. This change can be enhanced because R&D&i management is being valued in public works' bids as an added factor to the traditional ones: price, duration and quality.
