About

Welcome to the UK leg of the European Satellite Navigation Competition (ESNC).

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 a successful business.

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

The ESNC is a pioneer in bringing space and business together, supporting entrepreneurs to get their ideas off the ground. Through a combination of cash prizes, business support programmes and networking, the competition is a great way to accelerate your business opportunity.

UK innovators have achieved outstanding success in the competition, winning twice and consistently reaching the highest number of entries. Simply entering the competition will help you think about your proposition in a new way, and put you in contact with peers, advisors and potential partners.

The UK leg of the ESNC is run by the Satellite Applications Catapult and supported by the UK Space Agency, Innovate UK, CGI, Airbus Defence and Space, Marks & Clerk and the European Space Agency.

The 2015 competition winners were announced at an awards ceremony in Berlin on 20 October 2015.
