TECNALIA certified for its R&D&I


AENOR has awarded Tecnalia with the certificate of R&D&I Management Systems,  based on standard UNE 166002, for its research, development and innovation. In this way, it becomes the first technological development centre to adapt its AENOR certificate to the requirements of the latest version of the standard.

The certificate of R&D&I Management Systems accredits that the organisation complies with the requirements of the standard UNE 166002, whose objectives are to organise, systematize and permanently improve R&D&I activities and to achieve maximum efficiency and effectiveness in research, development and innovation.

The 2021 version of the UNE 166002 standard published last March took into account the new international trends reflected in the international standard ISO 56002, and incorporates the eight principles of R&D&I of the international standard; knowledge generation (research) and realisation of value (innovation); future-focused leaders; strategic direction; culture; exploiting insights; managing uncertainty adaptable structures; and systems approach.
