Satellite Navigation Challenges

From Jim Volp Blog comes news of the European Satellite Navigation Competition and UK SatNav Challenge. The competitions aim

to identify and stimulate new GNSS applications and technologies throughout Europe. It will also encourage a support network to nurture emerging ideas from concept to commercial reality.

There are a number of prize categories.

The European Space Agency’s Technology Transfer Programme is seeking innovative and creative business ideas, aiming at a quick market implementation and a high value capture The field of application is not relevant for this innovation prize as long as it is based on the utilisation of satellite navigation in a non-space business environment.
