REGNER® is awarded with the Innovative SME distinction for its R&D Strategy
REGNER® has just been awarded with the Innovative SME distinction by the Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness of Spain, which values small and medium enterprises for their Research and Development projects.
The importance of innovation in SMEs has been widely highlighted by the European Commission to enhance the competitiveness in the global economy through the RIS3 instrument. The Research and Innovation Strategy for Smart Specialization sets priorities at national and regional levels to build competitive advantage by developing and matching research and innovation strengths with business needs.
The Spanish government supports the RIS3 instrument by several programs and activities, amongst them the Innovative SME distinction, which gives public recognition for those companies which place research and innovation at the heart of their business models.
Nowadays, one of the most important research projects of the company is the creation of a totally new electronic system intended to augment social inclusion and independence for people with reduced mobility. This new system arises from the need for a value-based health care, under tougher regulations, facing a lack of resources. These challenges in healthcare force companies to be more creative when doing research and developing new products and services. Receiving the Innovative SME distinction is a clear sign that REGNER® is moving in the right direction.
