The i+12 Institute developed in 2014 its Strategic Plan for Research and Innovation for the period 2014 – 2018, in which the following objectives were set:
- Continue the Strategic Plan of the i+12 Institute for the period 2009-2013.
- Be the framework that guides the actions of the Institute in the coming years taking into account the current environment and the degree of consolidation achieved in recent years.
- Promote actions in the field of innovation within the framework of the Institute.
- Adapt to the requirements set by the ISCIII in relation to the Health Research Institutes (HRI) and ensure the maintenance of accreditation.
In parallel, the Hospital Universitario 12 de Octubre has defined its Strategic Plan for the period 2015-2019. This plan defines various areas or fields of action, among which healthcare innovation is positioned as one of its main priorities for the coming years. In this way, the strategic objectives of the Hospital are aligned with those of the Research Institute.
A monitoring tool for the Strategic Plan has been developed to guarantee the correct follow-up of the outlined objectives and the execution of the activities of the i+12 Institute and the Hospital Universitario 12 de Octubre. This tool, called “Sistema SePIR+12”, allows knowing the fulfillment of the Action Plans and quantifies the achievement of the proposed work in the year and the accumulated achievement during the entire duration of the Strategic Plan.
