Reto Lehnica Discovery
Correos is launching the first call of the CorreosLabs with the “Reto Lehnica” aimed to develop professional projects which contribute to innovative products or services within a framework.
Meet CorreosLab and Reto Lehnica
Correos is implementing several initiatives aimed at exploring new business lines while at the same time modernising and improving the services it already provides.
One of these initiatives is CorreosLabs, a space created to develop entrepreneurial talent and establish a co‐working environment, where knowledge can be exchanged and ideas, concerns and opinions shared with like-minded entrepreneurs and professionals from different industries to build new, long-lasting business connections.
In its initial stage of new business, there is a greater willingness to adopt and develop new ideas that in turn, encourage collaboration among different players, thus allowing outcomes with a greater degree of innovation to be obtained.
Correos is launching the first call of the CorreosLabs Reto Lehnica with these rules in mind.
Five innovative business projects have be selected from the following themes:
- Logistics – projects that improve environmental logistics such as, traceability, new delivery models, urban logistics, circular economy, energy efficiency, new route models, dynamic deliveries, drones, autonomous vehicles.

- Digitisation – digital projects that are based on emerging technologies that allow the transformation of traditional businesses, such as: payments, blockchain, digital identity, artificial intelligence, additive manufacturing and virtual reality.
- A contribution of up to €30,000 will be given to each project selected.
