In its fifth year, the Copernicus Masters competition is open again. Ideas for services, business concepts and applications based on satellite Earth observation data are now being accepted.
The vast amounts of data produced by Europe's Copernicus environment monitoring programme and its Sentinel satellites open the door to countless products and applications in a wide array of business sectors.
Since 2011, ESA and Germany's Anwendungszentrum GmbH Oberpfaffenhofen have organised the Copernicus Masters competition to aid entrepreneurs in bringing their innovations to market. The competition offers a prize pool of over €300,000 in cash prizes, access to a leading international network, corresponding data, start-up funding and other support.
