5% of annual turnover invested in R+D+i

In IDP we consider the investment in R+D+i as a strategic prop, and every year an important percentage of our resources are destined for these works.
The projects of R+D+i where it takes part in IDP, seek to create innovative products and services to meet the needs of our customers and society in general, and improve internal management processes that achieve excellence and work efficiency.



Project HARSHWORK promoted by the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT), which aims to increase the efficiency of the handling of components working in difficult environments through a software model that predicts and quantifies wear.


The project has a total budget of 1.56 million euros over a three year period .The project will optimise operating costs by reducing maintenance times, lowering costs and increasing machine performance. The results of the project are of great interest to mining companies and manufacturers of mining equipment, as well as to a wider range of steelmaking, engineering and recycling.

Smart Urban Management

IDP has been honoured by the World e-Governments Organization of Cities and Local Governments World (WeGo) which groups the world's major cities (Seoul, Barcelona, Paris, Frankfurt, San Francisco, São Paulo, Nairobi, Abu Dhabi, etc..) with the first prize in the category of Urban Management  as a world leader in the field of smart cities (smart cities).

Specifically the project transforms the current management of cities in an efficient model through intensive use of information technology and communication (TIC).


The project is transverse and is structured in 6 main lines of action:

  • Environment (waste management, water cycle, environmental parameters).
  • Mobility (active traffic management, public transport and parking. Boosting electric vehicle).
  • Energy efficiency (smart grid, smart building, efficient lighting).
  • Government and Citizenship (e-government, e-participation, open government and open data).
  • Competitiveness (co-working, telecommuting, e-learning, e-commerce).
  • Quality of life (phone-care, telemedicine, public safety and civil protection).
