June 27, 2022
Tupy was the winner of Santa Catarina’s Professor Caspar Erich Stemmer Innovation Award in the category of Service or Process. The achievement was announced this week in Florianópolis. Tupy’s innovation process, awarded by Fundação de Amparo à Pesquisa e Inovação do Estado de Santa Catarina (Fapesc) was structured based on two essential elements, the process and people, as explained by Fábio Caramori, Tupy’s Innovation and New Business Development manager. “Over more than 80 years, Tupy has been groundbreakingly responding to market challenges. Implementing an innovation platform is a way to consider all appropriate processes and tools to create value from diverse skills. After all, great innovations do not come from solo flights, but from the participation of the entire ecosystem, which is the proposal of Labs.”
Labs includes ShiftT, Tupy’s startup accelerator, the Open Innovation Portal, new business initiatives, intra-entrepreneurship, operational improvements, and all other actions that further the ecosystem and enable the Company, its employees, and partners to be increasingly innovative.
