The European Satellite Navigation Competition is awarding the best services, products, or business innovations using satellite navigation in everyday life.

The aim of the annual award is to provide support to entrepreneurs, start-ups, students, and all participants to get their business off the ground.

This international contest is promoted by Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) stakeholders, such as the European GNSS Agency (GSA), the European Space Agency (ESA), the German Aerospace Center (DLR), and the German Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure (BMVI) in association with the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi). In addition, regional partners worldwide host a regional challenge and provide valuable support.

This year's prize pool is worth EUR 1 million, including cash, business incubation, coaching, patent consulting, prototyping and marketing support, and publicity within the world's leading satellite navigation network. Winners of all prizes will be in the running for the grand prize of EUR 20,000 and six months of incubation.

Applications can be submitted until 30 June 2015.
