Copernicus is Europe’s most ambitious Earth observation programme and provides full free and open access to data for the development of applications in a wide variety of domains. 10 Petabytes of free Earth Observation (EO) data is generated by the Copernicus Programme every year. This data enables the Copernicus services to deliver near-real-time data on a global level, contributing toward the sustainable management of the environment. The data is sourced both from the family of Sentinel satellite missions, and from a multitude of in situ sensors. The Copernicus Masters 2018 – Europe’s leading innovation competition for EO is searching for such outstanding ideas, applications, and business concepts from future-oriented SMEs, start-ups, universities and individuals in the fields of business, research, and higher education. Participants of the Copernicus Masters can submit their innovative EO ideas to 16 challenges offered by the largest number of world-class partners since the competition started.
