The Cotec Foundation is a non-profit private organization whose mission is to promote innovation as a driving force for economic and social development. Cotec has around 80 sponsors, including private companies and local and regional government administrations. H.M. King Felipe VI is the Honorary President. In 2001, Cotec Italy was formed and in 2003 Cotec Portugal. Cotec was created in 1990 by the initiative proposed by King Juan Carlos I. From the start it was noticed for its hard work in service of technological innovation among Spanish companies. In carrying out this mission, Cotec mainly stood out in two fields: monitoring the research, development and innovation in Spain, and providing analysis and advice on innovation, technology and economy. In 2015 Cotec decided to expand its challenges to become a true change agent which contributes to the development of the Spanish economy and society. Fulfilling its objectives is part of a larger more ambitious definition of the concept of innovation: Innovation is all change (not only technological) based on knowledge (not only scientific) which generates value (not only economical).
