In 2021, the Copernicus Masters offers participants a diverse range of topic-specific challenges to tackle global challenges with their competition entries. The 8 competition partners – European Space Agency (ESA), the European Commission (COM), the German Aerospace Center (DLR), Planet, BayWa, UP42 with Airbus, the German Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure (BMVI) and Portugal Space (Portuguese Space Agency) – have each established unique challenges for the participants, with individual prize pools designed to support the winner to further develop its solution.
Again this year, besides the topic-specific challenges, participants also have the opportunity to also choose a regional or country-related Copernicus Prize Partner – powered by the European Commission – who can best support their innovations. In addition, the Copernicus Prize Partners award extra prizes to their winner. Discover more here!
