Copernicus Masters - International Competition for Innovative EO-Solutions

May 7, 2018 - 10:00

The Copernicus Masters is an international competition that awards prizes to innovative solutions, developments and ideas for business and society based on Earth observation data. Big data produced by Earth observation holds huge potential for the creation of innovative products and services. A wide variety of industries and areas of public interest stand to profit from the advances of the Copernicus programme. The Copernicus Masters has developed into the moving force promoting cutting-edge solutions. Annually, different prize categories tackle global challenges with revolutionary competition entries in the fields of deep learning, IoT, big data analytics, smart mobility and industry 4.0 – just to name a few.

As partner of the Copernicus Masters, the German Aerospace Center, DLR is looking for innovative ideas that use Earth observation data to drive the sustainable management of our limited natural resources and foster human well-being. In addition to using Copernicus data and other Earth observation satellite data, participants are encouraged to supplement their ideas with other sources of data, such as information generated by crowd-sourcing or in-situ measurements. Ideas should support professionals working in these areas, inform the public, or empower public authorities to take action and solve issues on a local, national, or global scale.

Areas of particular interest to DLR are:

  • Environmental Management: Identifying environmental issues and managing natural resources
  • Sustainable Energy Management: Monitoring and improving the generation, distribution, or consumption of energy
  • Health Promotion: Identifying, monitoring and / or providing solutions for negative environmental factors affecting human health
