The UK Leg of the European Satellite Navigation Competition 2014 is now closed!

Do you have a brilliant idea that uses satellite navigation technology to create a new product or service? The European Satellite Navigation Competition (ESNC) is looking for individuals, teams or companies with innovative ideas that it could help grow into successful businesses.

Whether it’s an app, software platform or new piece of technology, the ESNC can connect you with a world-class network and provide expert business mentoring with guidance in protecting Intellectual Property (IP), refining your business model and maximising investor appeal.

The UK leg of the Europe-wide competition is now open for submissions; home grown innovators have achieved outstanding success in the competition, winning the overall European prize twice in the past 10 years, and placing in the top 5 every year we’ve entered.

The competition is open from 1 April to 30 June 2014. The UK winner will be announced in September and the European winner in October 2014.

The UK leg of the ESNC is run jointly by the Satellite Applications Catapult and the University of Nottingham and supported by the UK Space Agency, Technology Strategy Board, CGI, Airbus Defence & Space, Marks & Clerk and the European Space Agency Business Incubation Centre, Harwell.

Take a look at the ESNC launch film and see how the competition has transformed the business of 2012 winner, iGeolise.
