Aureel in the ESNC 2016
Aureel got two silver medals in the ESNC 2016, within two different contests held this year. As we already told you in this other article, we got a second place at the regional level in Catalonia, and this time we are proud to announce that we got another second place on October 25th in Madrid, in the special award category granted by the ESA (European Space Agency).
This two awards are directly related to our efforts towards the development of our project REEN, which has been chosen between more than 400 startup candidates from more than 40 countries all over the world.
The ESNC, aka European Satellite Navigation Competition, is a competition at a European level that recognizes ideas, projects and companies that use satellite positioning for commercial purposes. Many important entities collaborate to make ESNC happen, like the ESA (European Space Agency), which contributes to discover new ideas and projects based on european espacial technology, like GNSS.
The awards ceremony was held in Madrid, on October 25th, where the ESA gave us the second place in the especial category, rewarding innovation for commercial purposes based on their technologies.

We have had several supporters during 2016 that help us consolidate the basis of Aureel, like the participation in the startup incubator from the European Space Agency in Barcelona, the support of Youth Business Spain, Zaragoza Activa, Bridge for Billions, and recently these two european awards that keep proving that we are moving in the right direction.
We keep working hard to make 2017 an unbelievable year for us. Sports powered by european espacial technology is even closer.
Go Aureel, go!
