Get to know us

It's not about the size, it's about the attitude. It's not "where," it's "how." And with whom. Innovation is about transforming knowledge and technology into commercial opportunities: with objectives, timelines and a clear budget. That is why our goal is not only to obtain support, but to make our clients' projects commercially successful.

Innovating, we are one

In 1986, José Mª ZABALA, a chemical engineer with a PhD in Applied Natural Sciences from the University of Leuven, had an innovative idea.

From his idea, Zabala Innovation Consulting was born, a consultancy firm dedicated to the comprehensive management of grants, subsidies and R&D projects.

Three decades later, Zabala Innovation isa a company that counts over 320 professionals, 13 offices and more than 8,000 clients.

A unique team


At ZABALA Innovation, we are committed to innovation ecosystems, and this is reflected through the actions we develop each year. We know the importance of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to create new innovative business models that enable social progress; and for that reason, we integrate the SDGs in the company, particularly with goals that are exclusively involved in business activities and their management, both in the management of our company, and in helping our clients integrate the SDGs in their strategic plans.
