The Copernicus Masters competition enriches its content this year by launching a new and exciting feature funded by the European Commission – the Copernicus Accelerator – that will get high-level professionals involved in a coaching programme regarding space and innovative solutions for business and society. The beneficiaries of such coaching services are the finalists of the Copernicus Masters 2016, divided among the seven Challenges that compose the overall competition.
Mentors will support the talented minds chosen as finalists in the Copernicus Masters competition in turning their Earth Observation applications into reality and contributing to society and business through their ground-breaking solutions.
Each mentor will work with up to two participants for approximately six to eight months. At the end of this collaboration, the two parties will be required to deliver a report to the EC highlighting the impact and outcomes of the mentoring process, and the mentor will then receive €5,000 for their contribution.
The application deadline is 16 September.
