Each year, ten teams will have the opportunity to tackle crucial industry problems using the combined powers of IoT and Galileo technologies. We partner with real companies faced with real challenges. Be part of the next generation of talented entrepreneurs who can solve them.

The nuts and bolts: Teams come up with innovative solutions that use IoT and Galileo to one of our industry challenges. At least two participants with complementary skill sets are needed to make up a team (think: superstar developer and business extraordinaire!)

The application process is simple, and our online platform provides step-by-step guidance. Be sure to review the evaluation criteria to ensure you have the best chance of being selected for the programme. Put your IoT ideas and solutions to good use, join us for a three-month virtual sprint, and score a chance to win €20,000.
