[iOS] Eddystone event in background


I am trying to get my beacon`s events fired in the background without using CoreLocation (as i would need the always location authorization).
So i came across eddystone beacons, which work with CoreBluetooth.

Is there a way to get relieable events using the Eddystone technology?
Is it also possible to launch the app (when the event is triggered in the background) to execute a small task? (Like it is possible with iBeacons)

Thank you!
