ESNC 2014 University Challenge presented @ PoliTO students

Andreas Dippelhofer from Anwendungszentrum GmbH Oberpfaffenhofen (AZO) will present the European Satellite Navigation Competition (ESNC) and the ESNC University Challenge to students of the Politecnico di Torino.

High-quality GNSS education is a driver of innovation, a means of enhancing companies' competitiveness, and a valuable opportunity for international cooperation. The ESNC University Challenge is being carried out by Anwendungszentrum GmbH Oberpfaffenhofen and the GNSS Research & Applications Centre of Excellence (GRACE) with the support of the FP7 project GENIUS (GNSS Education Network for Industry and UniversitieS), Awapatent AB, and the Satellite Applications Catapult.

The University Challenge, as part of the European Satellite Navigation Competition (ESNC) 2014, invites students and research associates from any field of study to show off their innovative business ideas. These ideas can propose new potential uses for satellite navigation in virtually any area – from logistics and healthcare all the way to mobile apps. This one day workshop is intended to introduce the ESNC University Challenge, provide competitors with information (e.g. on SatNav application potential), and grant access to experts in global navigation satellite systems, business and intellectual property. Sound out your ideas and get valuable feedback!
