ENAIRE has selected AI Methods as one of the two winning startups in its Air Traffic Management acceleration programme. The Spanish Air Navigation Service Provider carried out the first edition of this Acceleration Programme through its Research & Development subsidiary, CRIDA. A call that attracted proposals from 32 startups from around the world, each competing for the opportunity to revolutionise air traffic management through innovative solutions.
The Jury's decision was to award AI Methods and Birdstop as the two startups that will participate in the acceleration programme. Each selected startup will receive an economic prize, as well as personalised support to implement their cutting-edge technologies at ENAIRE during the six-month acceleration period, from October 2023 to March 2024.
The programme encompasses a multi-faceted approach:
Start-up: Teams will be formed for each startup, drawing up a roadmap to initiate a proof of concept, pilot or prototype within ENAIRE.
Individual follow-up: Weekly team meetings from October 2023 to March 2024 will provide continuous support, with access to ENAIRE facilities and staff to facilitate seamless integration.
Virtual Campus: it will host 24 content modules and will equip participants with entrepreneurship knowledge.
A challenging journey aimed at incorporating our AI weather forecasting service to support the Spanish air transport ecosystem. We are very grateful for this opportunity!
