OUR PATH
50 YEARS AND THIS HAS ONLY JUST BEGUN

In 1974, IKERLAN began its journey with the aim of developing technology that would improve the innovation and competitiveness of the companies in its environment. It did so as one of the fundamental pillars of the Mondragón experience, the cooperative model promoted by the renowned Basque priest, José María Arizmendiarrieta.

Today, 50 years later, IKERLAN is a pioneer in applying artificial intelligence in industry, it has developed the first tram that works without catenary, and we have reached space by collaborating with NASA.

What will we be doing in another 50 years? We do not know. But we do know that the experience of having come this far and the attitude of continuing to progress are the best bets for the future.

IK2024
WE HAVE A PLAN

IK2024 is the strategic plan that we have collaboratively drawn up at IKERLAN. And we are clear about it. 

Thus, the IK2024 Strategic Plan is based on a commitment to people and talent; on maintaining leadership in knowledge transfer and the contribution of competitive value to companies; on reinforcing our strategic positioning and on continuing to develop innovative technologies that respond to the needs of companies and society. And all this, without losing our essence.

That is the plan: transformation. The world's and our own.
