The Cotec Foundation is a private non-profit organization whose mission is to promote innovation as a driving force of economic and social development. His Majesty King Felipe VI is the Honorary President. Since 2001 there has also been Cotec Italia, and since 2003, Cotec Portugal.
Cotec was created in 1990 at the initiative of King Juan Carlos I. From its beginnings, it stood out for its intense work at the service of technological innovation among Spanish companies. In fulfilling this mission, Cotec excelled particularly in two activities: serving as an observatory of R&D&I in Spain, and providing analysis and advice on Innovation, Technology and Economics.
In 2015 Cotec decided to broaden its challenges to become a true agent of change that contributes to the development of the Spanish economy and society. In order to fulfill this mission, it sets off with a more ambitious definition of the concept of innovation: Innovation is all change (not only technological) based on knowledge (not only scientific) that generates value (not only economic).
