REGNER® receives an Innovative SME distinction for its R&D Strategy
REGNER® has just received an Innovative SME distinction by the Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness of Spain. This distinction rewards small and medium enterprises for their Research and Development projects.
The European Commission has highlighted the importance of innovation for SMEs, and the fact that it enhances competitiveness in the global economy, through RIS3. The Research Innovation Strategies for Smart Specialisation set priorities at the national and regional levels to build competitive advantage by developing and matching research and innovation strengths with business needs.
The Spanish government supports RIS3 through several programs and activities. Among them is the Innovative SME distinction, which recognizes companies placing research and innovation at the heart of their business models.
Currently, one of the most important research projects by REGNER® is the creation of a totally new electronic system to increase 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 health care 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.
