The Farming by Satellite Prize rewards young innovators exploring the use of satellite technologies to improve agriculture and reduce environmental impact. Applications for the 2020 Prize are now open.

Kicking off its 5th edition, the Farming by Satellite Prize is designed to encourage young professionals, farmers and students in Europe and Africa to create new, sustainable and environmentally friendly solutions using Copernicus, EGNOS and Galileo. A total Prize pool of €10,000 is up for grabs in 2020 with prizes distributed among the top three European applicants as well as the best idea submitted to the Special Africa Prize. Returning this year, the Special Africa Prize encourages young Africans to seek satellite-based solutions for their agricultural needs.

Map glassface
Glassface is a social media app that matches helpers and help seekers located in close vicinity. By posting a “help story” you can either express a need of help or a help offer and thus find a match. Glassface provides real-time, accurate location of a help seeker, shows helpers the quickest route to get there and gives the possibility to both, award courage and being endorsed for helping. During the corona crisis the usage of the app is free of charge. This can be especially interesting for elderly people, persons under quarantine or someone at risk due to pre-medicated conditions.

Develop IoT solutions with satellite positioning

The uptake of IoT is growing rapidly and immense amounts of data are being generated every day. This system of interconnected devices draws valuable data from our private and professional lives, supplying insights and enabling faster reactions and responses to the ever-changing competitive landscape. Combined with satellite navigation technologies such as Galileo, IoT solutions can bring even more value to industry. Using Galileo allows more reliable and accurate positioning, and its increased availability enables IoT devices to determine their position even in demanding urban environments. Careful thought and extensive investigation into where Galileo can make a positive impact on IoT solutions has resulted in an innovative new programme to support IoT developers and entrepreneurs, Point.IoT.

Sehr geehrte Damen und Herren,

die Gesundheit unserer Konferenz-Teilnehmer und Partner ist uns wichtig. Daher wollen auch wir unseren Beitrag leisten, um die rasche Verbreitung des Corona-Virus zu verlangsamen. Vor diesem Hintergrund haben wir uns in enger Abstimmung mit unseren Partnern entschlossen, die Konferenz „Global Navigation meets Geoinformation 2020“ abzusagen. Diese war für den 28. April 2020 am ESOC in Darmstadt geplant.

Yuri and constellr at the PSW

The ESA BIC startup from Baden-Württemberg yuri is the winner of the ESA Space Solutions challenge of the Paris Space Week (PSW). Mark Kugel from yuri pitched in front of a jury and convinced them. „We‘re very excited to be this year‘s winner. The jury decided based on the positive impact our work in microgravity will have in medicine and biotech, which makes us even more proud.“
