Ports 4.0

The Ports 4.0 capital fund is the corporate open innovation model adopted by State Ports and the Spanish Port Authorities to attract, support and facilitate the application of talent and entrepreneurship to the Spanish public and private port-logistics sector in the context of the 4th industrial revolution.

The fund’s main goal is to actively promote and incorporate disruptive or incremental innovation as an element of competitiveness, efficiency, sustainability, safety and protection in the Spanish public and private port-logistics sector, in order to facilitate its transition to the 4.0 economy.

Ports 4.0 will incentivise the creation or consolidation of a network of startups, spin-offs or new lines of business in the sphere of technology at any existing companies which develop innovative products, services or processes for the market-centric port logistics sector.
