Iberia, first airline to obtain three AENOR innovation certificates

These certificates position Iberia as a user of leading technology

Iberia is at the forefront of innovation, as demonstrated by its three Aenor certificates.

It is the first company in the tourism sector and the first airline in the world to obtain these three certificates simultaneously. In Spain, only three companies have achieved all three UNE certificates, and one of them is Iberia.

Aquestes són les tres UNE amb què Aenor ha certificat la innovació a Iberia:

UNE 166002: R&D&i Management System.

This UNE certifies that an organisation is able to innovate with a clear strategy designed by its management. It analyses whether leaders promote innovation and a culture that fosters adaptability. At the same time, it certifies the search for new opportunities and the generation of new knowledge through creativity and the implementation of technological projects.

UNE 166006: Surveillance and Intelligence System

This certification guarantees that Iberia constantly conducts an external and internal analysis of the competition, the macroeconomic context, and the latest technological and innovative trends in the market and in society. It also certifies that decisions are made on the basis of these analyses, and that the organisation uses surveillance and intelligence as key tools to manage its innovation. Innovation improves access to and management of scientific, technical, legislative, regulatory, economic, market, and social information.

UNE 166008: Technology Transfer

This certifies that the organisation fulfils all the necessary requirements to carry out the transfer of the technology obtained from an innovation activity to a third company.

The UNE are certifiable specifications whose objective is to standardise processes, establishing requirements to be fulfilled by organisations according to each type of standard.

Iberia has obtained the three UNE innovation certificates that endorse its innovation, surveillance, and intelligence management system, as well as its capacity to carry out the technological transfer of its own intellectual property to a third company.
