The 2014 Copernicus Masters competition was looking for innovative solutions for business and society based on Earth observation data from 15 April - 20 July. In its fourth year, the annual Copernicus Masters competition has once again affirmed the growing importance of Earth observation in virtually every sphere of our daily lives. The 171 submissions received from 43 countries in 2014 offer an excellent glimpse of the next generation of Earth observation services, which are set to benefit in particular from the expansion of digital infrastructures.

ESA Business Incubation Centres all across Europe support entrepreneurs to turn space-connected business ideas into commercial companies. That doesn't mean rocket science, but applies to multiple application fields besides Earth Observation such as navigation and positioning, communications techniques, materials, processes, signals or robotics.
