Thanks to Skills for the Future, we made our dream come true. We always wanted to work for the automotive industry and this project is leading us to new adventures in the sector. We are also delighted to see that other participants as well as Hyundai employees from Madrid elected us as the best mini company too. Winning both the audience and jury awards gives us more confidence as regards our future endeavours. We look forward to visit the offices of Hyundai Motor Europe in Frankfurt, a city dedicated to innovation and performance.
The automotive industry is constantly looking for talented, skilled employees, so our Skills for the Future initiative aims to build up young people's competences in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths. In this year's Award programme, we have seen great potential among the finalists. Congratulations to all participants, especially AMECS who earned the judges' votes for their innovative and sustainable approach to an issue that affects all car owners in Europe.
