TECNALIA is a leading Research and Technological Development Centre in Europe and member of BRTA (Basque Research and Technology Alliance) whose mission is to transform technology into GDP, helping companies to be more competitive and generate wealth and employment. Its key scopes of action are: Advanced Manufacturing, Digital Transformation, Energy Transition, Sustainable Mobility, Health and Urban Ecosystem.

TECNALIA currently has a team of over 1,400 experts (43% women – 57% men) from 29 different nationalities. Its activity consists of visualising, identifying and developing comprehensive technological solutions together with its clients. Among them, there are more than 7,400 companies with which it has worked since its origins in 2011, 75% of which are SMEs TECNALIA’s proposal for steel companies covers the technological needs throughout the entire manufacturing process, from raw materials and production equipment to the final product, including development to meet the needs of the steel market with required functionalities, improvement of the energy efficiency of the process, taking into account the objective of climate neutrality and the sustainability associated with the use of raw materials and the reuse / recovery of the waste generated.

TECNALIA has developed a specific strategy for Steel companies aligned with the application of the Industry 4.0 concept in the sector.
