The number of clients has increased by 5%, proving the trust of many companies in TECNALIA to face this crisis.
The effort of the team and the trust and commitment of companies to R&D and innovation are essential for the TECNALIA research and technological development centre to face the pandemic and meet its expected objectives and management plans. Thus, despite the difficulties generated by the pandemic, TECNALIA has managed to achieve revenues of 113.6 million euros in 2020. These results stem from the R&D transfer strategy to companies that TECNALIA had carried out since its creation ten years ago.
This was announced this morning in Donostia-San Sebastián by its Chairman Alex Belaustegui, and the Managing Director of TECNALIA, Jesús Valero. They explained that “we have practically maintained the turnover compared to the previous year, which is a very positive result considering the complexity of the situation. Furthermore, the number of customers has increased by 5%, a sign of the confidence they have in TECNALIA as a key instrument of innovation to emerge more competitive from the crisis. We have thus managed to exceed collaboration levels with more than 750 companies in 2020, 75% of them being SMEs”.
