It’s the final countdown for #myEUspace! Ready to submit?

It’s the final countdown for #myEUspace! Ready to submit?

We have many countdowns to look forward to this week, the first being the Galileo Launch 11 taking place 24 hours just before the #myEUSpace deadline! To help you put a final touch on your projects/ideas, here are the nuts and bolts of the “Space my Life” and “Dive in Quantum” challenges.

The “Space my life” challenge looks to create consumer solutions such as mobile applications and services using space data for health, gaming, sports, leisure, tourism, and everyday life purposes. The ideas should be leveraging innovative features of EGNSS and Copernicus in the mobile apps and smart wearables domain, fusing non-space technologies like IoT, big data, artificial intelligence, drones, 5G, augmented/mixed reality, etc.

For example, Galileo’s capability to deliver precise, robust positioning and timing information, combined with IoT, can enhance our lives through interconnected devices. Another example of innovative applications in this area is the exploitation of Galileo’s differentiators – like the High Accuracy Service and the authentication features – of which mobile applications can benefits thanks to the availability of GNSS raw measurements in smartphones.

Previous solutions targeting mass markets were #MyGalileoSolution competition overall winner “Vision Anchor” and #ΜyGalileoSolution finalist “Bit Pet“.  

Dive in Quantum, yes that’s a tough one!

Quantum technologies use the properties of quantum effects – the interactions of molecules, atoms, and even smaller particles, known as quantum objects – to create practical applications in many different fields, and space applications are one of them.

Participants are tasked with coupling Copernicus and Galileo with quantum technologies such as quantum computing, sensing, simulation, encryption to enhance space downstream applications. 

With high-speed connectivity, protected communications, and high computing power becoming essential, quantum technologies can address or help mitigate some of the biggest challenges of today’s digital challenges.

Applications addressing the “Dive in Quantum” innovation area shall be submitted only in Track 1. In Track 1, applicants will have to turn their theoretical idea into a prototype of their product, articulating their value proposition and exploring Problem-Solution Fit based on a validation test in a relevant environment. Projects are expected to reach at least TRL 4.

In Track 2 teams are asked to bring their prototype/beta version to a Minimum Viable Product (MVP), reach a functional stage and commercialization readiness and develop a value proposition to meet Product-Market Fit. Projects expected to reach at least TRL 9.

Time is running out but before submitting, remember to read again the Terms of References here. Good luck!
