University Challenge

UNIVERSITY CHALLENGE: FROM THE LECTURE HALL TO THE BOARD ROOM

The Galileo Masters University Challenge addresses students and research associates with a background in aerospace and GNSS-specific courses of study, in particular with the aim of fostering the transformation of bright ideas into commercial ventures.

Challenge

High-quality GNSS education is a driver of innovation, a means of enhancing companies’ competitiveness, and a valuable opportunity for international cooperation. To bridge the gap from GNSS research and academia to entrepreneurship, the Galileo Masters University Challenge addresses students and research associates with a background in aerospace and GNSS-specific courses of study, in particular with the aim of fostering the transformation of bright ideas into commercial ventures.

In addition, the Galileo Masters University Challenge seeks to reach out to any young researchers working in areas of potential applications, be they prospective automotive engineers, logistics providers, game and other mobile application developers, or health promoters. The competition heightens the exposure and credibility of student innovations on a global level while establishing links to the world of business. The evaluators will focus on creativity and market needs rather than the technological perfection of the business ideas submitted.
