After working on observing trends in the retail sector, 4 challenges have been identified in the value chain that need an innovative solution, whether based on technology or not. With their presented projects the finalists will have the opportunity to access the acceleration process, guided by a team of experts in innovation methodology and project development who will support and train them to develop their businesses and support them in the subsequent phase of implementation and/or evolution in the market place.
This applied innovation is one of our key techniques. The first edition of the retail acceleration programme is made up of a network of retail businesses spread throughout the territory of Aragón with which to collaborate for real market testing. Business pilots will be carried out in business environments.
