in focus
The past year has been a very exciting and successful one for Anwendungszentrum GmbH Oberpfaffenhofen! With more than 140 submissions from 23 European countries, the Copernicus Masters competition managed to improve on its previous year by a full 35%; the European Satellite Navigation Competition had every reason to celebrate its 10th year, having received 413 entries in 2013; and back in April, we commemorated the creation of 1,000 jobs through the incubation programme run by AZO and ESA BIC Bavaria.
We wish you and yours a relaxing holiday season and a happy new year. We're already looking forward to collaborating with you again in 2014!
