How can we use Satellite Technologies
to Improve Agriculture and Reduce Environmental Impact?
The aim of the prize is to promote Europe’s Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) and Earth Observation (EO) services in agriculture.
The competition is for students and young people across Europe and Africa and is looking for new ideas and innovations, particularly those relying upon European Geostationary Navigation Overlay Service (EGNOS), the forthcoming GALILEO system, or Copernicus. Entries can be from individuals or teams, and be about any type of agriculture.
⇒ Students and Post graduates: Use your knowledge and creativity to find innovative ways to use satellite technologies to improve agriculture and the environment.
⇒ Professors and Lecturers: If you have students who have already submitted impressive work or ideas in this area, encourage them to write it up for this competition. You can also build it into your teaching programme for the year and support your students with their applications.
⇒ The prize: 1st place=€5,000, 2nd place=€3,000, 3rd place=€1,000, Special Africa prize=€4,000 and an expenses-paid trip to Berlin for all shortlisted teams to participate in the final stage of the competition, and the award ceremony.
⇒ A group of expert judges will review every idea.
