Farming by satellite

How can we use Satellite Technologies to Improve Agriculture and Reduce Environmental Impact?

A summer project competition for students and young people across Europe

Rewarding success and innovation

The aim of the prize is to promote Europe’s Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) and Earth Observation (EO) services in agriculture. We’re looking for new ideas and innovations, particularly those relying upon European Geostationary Navigation Overlay Service (EGNOS), the forthcoming GALILEO system, or Copernicus.  Entries can be from individuals or teams, and be about any type of agriculture.
