Seeking to bridge the gap between Earth observation (EO) research and entrepreneurship, this challenge is designed to offer a creative platform for developing the most cutting-edge ideas using EO data. In addition to establishing links to the world of business, the University Challenge increases the exposure and credibility of student-driven innovations at the global level. Those tasked with evaluating the solutions submitted will thus focus on creativity and market needs rather than technological maturity.
Submissions are welcome in any relevant application field, including but not limited to:
Submissions to the University Challenge will be evaluated against the following criteria:
Does the solution demonstrate a novel application of Earth observation data?
Does the solution use Copernicus data to add value for end-users?
Does the solution apply Copernicus data in a technically feasible way?
Does the solution have real market potential?
