How does it work?

The business consultancy provided by ACCIÓ’s Strategic Innovation Service allows you to consolidate your company’s innovation model. It works following these stages:

  1. You apply for the service and explain your starting point, how you manage innovation, the challenges you have, etc. It is important to specify the difficulties you think you are conditioning the progress of your company and are hindering it from starting to innovate.
  2. We study your application and prepare a first meeting between the company management or administrators and the ACCIÓ technical teams to design the implementation of the service.
  3. Analysis: workshop with the management team of the company following European Commission-certified working methods.
  4. Recommendations: work session where we present an Evaluation Report and prioritize the actions to be carried out.
  5. Implementation: we prepare training workshops tailored to the needs of your company and help you identify and take advantage of services and grants that will help you launch a new model of systemic innovation in your company.


The implementation period scheduled for phases 2, 3 and 4, together, may involve some three months of working together. Phase 5 will depend on the project chosen for implementing, and usually takes around 6-8 months.
