I-Box Create is a consulting company from Valencia (Spain) created in 2013 and specialized in Strategic Innovation Management for the Construction and Renewable Energies sectors. The company arises as a result from the extensive staff experience – that had been working in research centres and private companies from the past 15 years – when they realized that the consulting R&D services in current market did not achieve the necessary expertise for the activities development. One of the main handicaps of the consulting companies is the lack of staff research experience, which is mainly focused in Coordination and Management, without experience in the participation in the projects as technicians.
Against this weakness, I-Box staff has worked in more than 50 regional, national or European innovation projects. We currently work in H2020, ERASMUS+ and National MINECO approved own projects which led us to achieve the INNOVATE LABEL from the Spanish Ministry. This expertise provides I-Box client´s with the highest quality.
