#myEUspace competition goes live and invites you to disrupt Europe’s technological tomorrow! Are you ready for it?

01 September 2021
It is official! Following the success of the previous innovation competitions, the European Union Agency for the Space Programme (EUSPA) announces today #myEUSpace! The EUSPA-led competition targets innovators and entrepreneurs ready to develop and commercialise innovative solutions that leverage EU space data and services. It goes beyond the current space-applications horizon, fusing and testing new technologies in location-based services, smart mobility, smart agriculture, geomatics, and for the first time, quantum technologies.
From monitoring the performance of solar panels with Copernicus to assessing heat loss of buildings with Galileo-enabled drones, #EUSpace keeps an eye on our continent‘s green infrastructure.

Galileo enabling infrastructure development in harsh environments

24 February 2021
At an infrastructure project in Norway, Galileo-enabled machine guidance systems continued to operate in a challenging environment when others had already given up. This had a major impact in terms of work continuity and operating costs, so it is clear that access to Galileo’s differentiators will be a key criterion for industry and service providers when selecting operating systems in the future.
