The PTEC’s mission is to lift the Spanish construction sector to a high technological standard by identifying and analysing the main challenges it has to face in connection with, for example, society, sustainability and technology, through the development of strategies for tackling those challenges in the upcoming decades.
The Platform’s membership includes all kinds of organisations belonging to the construction sector and auxiliary industries, including companies, associations, universities and technology centres.
FCC Construcción is a member of the Standing Committee and the Strategy Committee and participates in the following strategic lines of work at the PTEC: Buildings and cities; underground construction; sustainable construction; use of ICT in building; health and safety; machinery and transport systems.
Like the PTEC, the ECTP has the mission of acting as a channel to innovation in construction, but the ECTP covers all of Europe, as an industry voice that is listened to by European Union agencies and other sector-specific platforms that share interests in some of the same fields of innovation. FCC Construcción is a member of the ECTP’s High Level Group, and it participates in several of the ECTP’s Focus Areas.
This is the European group of major construction companies whose main objective is to espouse its members’ interests in Europe in relationship with RDI.
