The European Satellite Navigation Competition (ESNC) — also known as the Galileo Masters — is looking for applications based on satellite navigation that use the technology in a new and innovative way. The deadline for entering is June 30.

No matter whether you are an individual or a team from a company, research institute, university, or start-up, what counts is your idea, say organizers.

The competition began in 2004 with three partner regions. Since then, the ESNC has grown into a global network of innovation and expertise, say organizers. In 2010, 23 regions competed against one another, 548 participants registered, and the 357 ideas turned in were evaluated by 186 experts. Many of the ideas submitted in previous years have been implemented and successfully launched into the market, according to the Galileo Masters team: "The key to our success is close collaboration with regional, institutional, and industrial partners with whom we share one common goal: promoting innovation and entrepreneurial spirit on Europe’s GNSS markets."

Ideas can be submitted via an online form.

The ESNC 2011 offers special topic prizes:

New regions to enter the competition this year include Catalonia, Estonia, Latvia, Macedonia, and Medjimurje.

The ESNC International Kick-Off Conference will be held on May 11 and is hosted by the Institute of Engineering and Technology (IET) in London.
