So, if you are an innovator, start-up, SME, researcher, student, developer or just a space enthusiast, we look forward to welcoming you to our online event,” Diani said.

Ready for a challenge?

The 2020 edition of the Galileo Masters opened for submissions back in April and the GSA is sponsoring three challenges in this year’s competition. The Space for Being Safe and Healthy Challenge is looking for solutions that use downstream space data provided by Galileo, EGNOS and/or Copernicus to help stem the spread of COVID-19. Have an idea? Let us hear about it! 

In its Space for Fun Challenge, the GSA is targeting solutions using data from Galileo and EGNOS in the gaming, sports, leisure and tourism markets. Covering a number of market segments, this challenge has a lot of scope for new ideas that need accurate and authenticated positioning information. Have an application in mind? Sign up here!

And this: Galileo for wearables

Finally, the Space for our Planet Challenge, aims to tackle climate change and environmental degradation, which represent an existential threat in Europe and worldwide. Have an idea about how to save the planet? Let us know about it.

We look forward to welcoming you online on 26 May 2020!
