Galileo Masters Challenge Partner

As a Challenge Partner, you have the possibility to address a specific challenge to participants. This gives you access to innovations for new products and services while reducing the risks, costs and time to market. You still manage and assess your innovation process but solutions or services can come from external as well as your internal sources. Additionally, you benefit from another great source of potential: Technology transfer as an intersectoral transfer of expertise.

Just get in touch with us at to receive further details.


Galileo Prize Partner

As a Galileo Prize Partner, you don’t offer a specific challenge but instead interesting and attention-grabbing prizes to attract participants. Each Galileo Prize is co-funded by the EC.

Since each participant of the Galileo Masters has to choose a Galileo Prize Partner that would best support his/her business case, you have the possibility to attract innovative entrepreneurs with e.g. a cash prize, a coaching or mentoring programme, marketing activities – and much more.
