After the success of the previous editions, the European Satellite navigation Competition (ESNC) 2014 is opening a pre-registration phase.
Having started in 2004 with three partner regions, the European Satellite Navigation Competition (ESNC) has since grown into a leading global network of innovation and expertise in the field of Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS).
It is annually looking for services, products, and business innovations that use satellite navigation in everyday life.
Each year, the ESNC global partner regions and key institutional and industry stakeholders award prizes worth around EUR 1 million - including cash prizes, business incubation, coaching, patent consulting, prototyping and marketing support, access to customers and user communities, and publicity in the world's leading satellite navigation network.
More than 130 partners, including the most relevant European GNSS stakeholders support participants in taking the next step with their business cases.
Since its beginning, the competition has welcomed more than 8,000 participants from 4,263 registered teams. A total of 204 winners have been awarded within the framework of the ESNC. Many of these business cases have already been implemented and successfully brought to the market.
