Since 2011 more than 900 participants submitted their innovative solution for business and society based on Earth observation to the Copernicus Masters. Many of the ideas submitted in previous years have been implemented and successfully launched into the market. Within the last six years close to 50 winners have been awarded within the competition.
All of the winners were announced as part of a festive Awards Ceremony on 25 October 2016 in Madrid, Spain.
