Every year, the Council of European Geodetic Surveyors (CLGE) organises a student contest aimed at rewarding young people for their work in various surveying-related areas. In the previous years there were three categories:

    • Geodesy, Topography,
    • GIS, Mapping and Cadastre and
    • Students and youngsters engagement.

      In 2015, the organisation added a fourth category ”Galileo, EGNOS and/or Copernicus. This category seeks to encourage research in the field of practical applications of the European efforts in Galileo, EGNOS, Copernicus. The work can focus on one of these topics or a combination of two or even three topics. For the time being, the participation of the academic contributors is restricted to bachelor and master students (except for the third category, students and youngsters engagement).  

      2017 CLGE Young Surveyors Prize open for submissions

      With a cash prize of EUR 1 000, the 2017 edition of the Council of Geodetic Surveyors’ Young Surveyors prize is now open for submissions. Once again, GSA is sponsoring a special prize for entries that show a dedicated use of Galileo, EGNOS or Copernicus. The contest is open to all bachelor and masters students in the surveying sector or a related field.

      The Details

      To participate, proposals should include an academic paper describing the project and how it benefits from Galileo, EGNOS or Copernicus (or in combination). Although papers may be an abridged version of a more complete thesis, the paper should describe the project in full, including financial and logistical aspects. Papers should not exceed 4 000 words, including an abstract of 300 words, and must be written in English.
      Submissions will be judged by a panel of CLGE delegates representing professional, academic and associated sectors. The winning entry will receive an award worth EUR 1 000 as well as a CLGE certificate during a special ceremony to be held on 27 September 2017 during the INTERGEO event in Berlin, Germany.
