The MyGalileoSolution competition is divided into two independent and parallel tracks, each one with its lists of requirements and deliverables:
Track 1: From Idea to Prototype
The aim of Track 1 is to develop a beta version of an application or a prototype of a solution implementing an idea, reaching minimum 50 % of its functionality.
Track 2: From Prototype to Product
The aim of Track 2 is to develop a fully functional solution ready to be commercialise starting from a beta version of an application or a prototype.
- The 30 best ideas will receive a prize in amount of € 15.000 (fifteen thousand Euro) each.
- The 20 best beta applications/prototypes will receive a prize in amount of € 40.000 (forty thousand Euro) each.
Third step: The Finals
Three best teams per each track will receive the following prizes:
- 1st Prize: € 40.000 (forty thousand Euro)
- 2nd Prize: € 25.000 (twenty-five thousand Euro)
- 3rd Prize: € 10.000 (ten thousand Euro)
- 1st Prize: € 60.000 (sixty thousand Euro)
- 2nd Prize: € 40.000 (forty thousand Euro)
- 3rd Prize: € 25.000 (twenty-five thousand Euro)
Prizes shall be awarded in accordance with the principles of transparency and equal treatment and shall accelerate progress towards the European Union priorities.
The following criteria will be considered for the assessment of the projects throughout the entire contest:
- Innovation (1-5): How innovative and novel is the approach compared to existing technical solutions and commercial services? Is there a similar solution already available on the market or is it addressing a new application area? Is the application technologically advanced (e.g. using multi-frequency, innovative algorithms)?
- Market potential (1-5): Is this solution marketable after repackaging this idea into a real product? Is there a potential market demand/customer base for this product? What is the revenue potential? Does the solution address needs of regional markets or improve the offer available in regional markets?
- Feasibility (1-5): How feasible is the solution within the limits of current technology? What progress has been achieved in the application/idea since the start of the challenge? Does the team have the necessary skills to develop and launch the product?
- Galileo-relevance (1-5): Is the application making use of Galileo? Is the increased accuracy or any other differentiator offered by Galileo relevant for the application? Are synergies with other space data explored?
In case of applications addressing societal challenge, socio-economic impact will be considered
