Farming by Satellite competition by European GNSS Agency, European Environment Agency & sponsored by CLAAS now accepts entries from across Europe

LONDON, Mar-14-2018 — /EuropaWire/ — The ‘Farming by Satellite Prize’ has a top prize of €5,000 and asks the question: “How can we use satellite technologies to improve agriculture and reduce environmental impact?”.

Dr Andrew Speedy, Chair of Judges, said: “We’re looking for new ideas and innovations, particularly those relying upon Europe’s satellite navigation services EGNOS, Galileo and the European Earth Observation programme, Copernicus. What’s different this year is that students and young professionals are invited to complete their projects in the summer vacation. We’re anticipating submissions featuring hot topics like Big Data, augmented reality, farming 4.0, artificial intelligence and more!”

Finalists will be invited to a major event for the judging and awards ceremony, with all expenses paid. In the past, this has been at the SIMA agricultural show in Paris, a Space Solutions conference in Prague and most recently, International Green Week in Berlin. A similar venue is being arranged for late 2018.

The competition is an initiative of the European GNSS Agency and the European Environment Agency, and is sponsored by CLAAS, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of agricultural machinery. The aim of the prize is to promote Europe’s Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) and Earth Observation (EO) services in agriculture.
