Applications to The Copernicus Masters, 2017 are open, with a prize pool of more than EUR 1.5 million. The Copernicus Masters is an annual competition with prizes for innovative uses of Earth observation (EO).
Teams and individuals from business, research and higher education, from countries across the world can enter their ideas, applications and business concepts for the use of EO in everyday life. In addition to a cash prize, winners will receive access to an international network, corresponding data, start-up funding and other support.
This year the Copernicus Accelerator gives the top 50 competition finalists (from Copernicus Participating Countries) a customized business development scheme. Finalists get to work with specialists to incubate their idea and benefit from access to business development networks. Coaching is intended to help ideas reach the market.
The Copernicus Masters started in 2011 and is coordinated by AZO on behalf of the European Space Agency.
