SPQReL (pronounced as "Sparkle") is a joint team for service robot competitions.

The SPQReL team participates in RoboCup@Home Social Standard Platform League and is also participating to the European Robotics League Service Robots.

The team is formed by two research groups:
SPQReL stems from the pseudo-Latin term "Socialis robot PopulusQue Romanus et Lindensis" that can be translated as "Social robot and people from Rome and Lincoln", referring to the Roman city of Lindum (which is now Lincoln).

The SPQReL team participated for the first time as a joint team in the RoboCup@Home Social Standard Platform League 2017, in Nagoya, Japan, gaining the 3rd place.
