*Two more Global Challenge showcase events will be held on February 28th in New Delhi, India and April 6th in Washington DC. Since we are in Europe, we are invited to the one that will take place in London.

The Global Challenge kicked off in May 2016 as an open call to individuals, universities, companies and governments to develop comprehensive proposals for using Hyperloop One’s disruptive transport technology in their region to move passengers and freight point-to-point, swiftly, and on-demand.

Our Proposal

The corridor will determine a Hyperloop network linking Madrid (Spain), Algeciras (Spain) and Tangier (Morocco), achieving a long-term coordinated economic and spatial development by joining two essential cores of Spain and North Africa.

Our proposal comes with commitments of support from regional and state governments (Consejería de Transportes, Vivienda e Infraestructuras and the Ministerio de Fomento), because of the great opportunity that it will mean both for Spain and Morocco in terms of tourism or trading, among others. Hyperloop linking these two cities would mean the final connection between an ancient continent full of history (Europe) and the new continent full of possibilities (Africa).

We are one of the Hyperloop One semifinalists of its global challenge

After fielding 2,600 registrants in five months, in January 2017 Hyperloop One released the locations of the 35 remaining semifinalist teams for its Hyperloop One Global Challenge, and Primex Team is one of them.

The semifinalists come from 17 countries, representing every continent except Antarctica, and Primex Team is the only one representing southern Europe and, moreover, linking two different continents: we are proposing to connect Madrid and Tangier in one hour.

“The Hyperloop One Global Challenge unleashed ideas from some of the world’s most creative engineers and planners, who care as much as we do about the future of transportation,” said Rob Lloyd, CEO, Hyperloop One. “These are all solutions that can make a real and immediate social and economic impact.” And Primex’ is one of them!

Next Step: 27th April 2017: SHOWCASE

27th April, Primex Team will attend the Showcase that will take place in London. There, Hyperloop One will explore how projects in the Global Challenge can fundamentally improve economies and regions. Along with other semifinalist teams, Primex Team will explore the details of its proposal with models, maps, renderings, talks and video and will be reviewed by Hyperloop One’s panel of experts in transportation, technology, economics and innovation. Two more Global Challenge showcase events will be held on February 28th in New Delhi, India and April 6th in Washington DC.

Our team sits on the Fundación Universidad-Empresa and it is formed by a total of 25 people. There are both students and professional profiles from different fields: law, business management, civil engineering, etc.

Fundación Universidad-Empresa (FUE) is a private non-profit institution with over 40 years’ experience pursuing the common interests of universities and business. FUE seeks to develop solid paths for communication, cooperation and knowledge sharing between universities and businesses.

It consequently acts as an information and coordination center for those universities and businesses that wish to establish agreements for the promotion of graduate employment and career development, higher education, entrepreneurship and RD&I, amongst others.

Graduate employment and career development are some of the main objectives that FUE has. That’s why FUE wants to facilitate students being part of contests like this, in which they can apply everything they are learning at University and go further on their professional development, so that they can reach their objectives, be part of a top knowledge community and work hard to develop a huge international project that will revolutionize the world.

We are quite experienced in Hyperloop because we attend the SpaceX Hyperloop Pod Competition with great results in our contest in Feb´16 in the Texas A&M University. We attend there as Gaia Hyperloop Team (Gaia Program is the biggest Program of Fundación Universidad Empresa)

We strongly believe in Hyperloop and we are encouraged to develop this technology in the world, specially in our selected route between Madrid and Tangier. This corridor with put together the oldest continent, full of past and history, with the newest one, full of future and possibilities.
