ESNC 2014 Presentation at the International Kick off in Rotterdam on 15 April
Presentation of the ESA Innovation Prize that is organised by the European Space Agency

The mission of ESA's Technology Transfer Programme Office (TTPO) is to enable the use of space technology and systems for non-space applications to the benefit of European citizens. The European Space Agency (ESA) supports company foundations at its currently nine ESA Business Incubation Centres. The ESA Innovation Prize 2014 is once again looking for the best business ideas for the use of satellite navigation systems. The winning idea should be ready for immediate implementation and quickly nurtured into a profitable business via the creation of a start-up company at one of the ESA Business Incubation Centres (ESA BICs) or other incubators in the European Space Incubators Network (ESINET). In addition, the winner will receive a cash award of EUR 10,000. The ESA Innovation Prize is directed towards entrepreneurs that want to position themselves successfully in this future market with the help of the ESA BICs. Take the next step and get your start-up business off the ground with the ESA Innovation Prize! Sign up from 1 April - 30 June at www.esnc.eu

About the Competition:
The European Satellite Navigation Competition (ESNC) is an international contest that awards the best services, products, or business innovations using satellite navigation in everyday life. Since 2004, ESNC’s mission has been to spur on development of market-driven applications based on satellite navigation technologies, including EGNOS and Galileo. Within the past nine years more than 6,000 developers took part in the ESNC. This year’s prize pool is worth EUR 1 million including cash, 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. Winners of the 25 regional and 7 special prizes will be in the running for the grand prize of EUR 20,000 and six months incubation in a regional centre of choice. Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) enable countless applications here on Earth. Submissions are welcome in any relevant application field, including: Location Based Services, Smart Moving, Safety & Security,Navigation, Health, Energy, Augmented Reality, Gaming, Sports & Tracking, Public & Social Services, Agriculture and many more.
