The origins of Repsol's research date back to the 40s, with the creation of the Repsol Research Center. This is the seed that has grown into the modern-day Technology Center, the largest private research center in Spain. Over 200 scientists and researchers from all over the world work there and it is considered “the heart of technological research and innovation” at our Company. It features a model based on open innovation and networking, with an important focus on collaboration with research teams from all over the world. In 2017, the center celebrated its 15th anniversary as a European leader in energy innovation.
