Dear Simon Hodson,

the Earth Monitoring Competition 2014 is now open for submissions - with further industry leaders as partners and a prize pool worth well over EUR 300,000.

Since 2011, the Copernicus Masters competition has showcased the most innovative solutions for business and society based on Earth observation data. Its purpose is to drive the development of market-oriented applications for utilising data generated through Europe's Copernicus programme.
In the Copernicus Masters 2014, an impressive list of partners will feature topic-specific challenges, including: the European Space Agency (ESA), the German Aerospace Center (DLR), European Space Imaging GmbH & Skybox Imaging Inc., CloudEO AG, Airbus Defence and Space & Hisdesat S.A., and Satellite Applications Catapult Ltd.

In 2014, for the first time, the Copernicus Masters is carried out on a worldwide basis. Geared primarily toward start-ups and other companies, researchers, and students, the competition will require entrants to submit their applications from 15 April to 13 July 2014 at

I would very much appreciate if you could forward information on this competition to your network of companies/students and/or publish the information on your website. Please find a short description of the competition for this purpose enclosed.

All information is also available at the competition website
