Description

Are you an innovative developer from Europe with experience in app development? Then take your chance and apply to spend one week at the European Space Agency (ESA) near Amsterdam between 4 and 12 May 2014.

The EU funded project S2G2M2 is inviting 20 developers to ESA’s ESTEC location in Noordwijk (including travel expenses and accommodation) – and you can be one of them! Whether you are selected for the App Camp will depend on the creativity of your previous works with regard to content, usability, design, and the underlying business concepts, so show us the best apps you have developed so far.

You shall state for which app category they would like to apply, and why. The following categories are available:

  • Agriculture;
  • Emergency and Rescue Management;
  • Environmental Protection;
  • Maritime Environment and Maritime Transportation;
  • Lifestyle apps.

Participants can apply either as teams of two or as teams of four. Those applying as teams of two will be grouped accordingly into teams of four. Candidates who do not have a team member yet can have a look at the “team matching” platform where they can find partners for their application.

Eligibility

Participation in the Space App Camp is open to any app developer of adult age with citizenship in EU Member States. Citizens from non-EU-member countries that are participating in the Entrepreneurship and Innovation Programme (EIP) of the Competitiveness and Innovation Programme, which include Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Croatia, Macedonia, Montenegro, Turkey, Serbia and Albania are also eligible.

Candidates need to have proven experience in app development.

Prize

On the final day of the Space App Camp, after one week of intense team work in your selected category, you and your team will present your app to the other participants and a jury of ESA, EC and S2G2M2 consortium representatives. The latter will then select the winning team. Each team member will be rewarded with the following:

  • Gadget;
  • S2G2M2 business coaching vouchers for the best app concepts with sustainable business cases.

Application

The online application form needs to be filled in completely in English language and submitted before 9:00 a.m. CET on 10 March 2014. Selection will be based upon the creativity shown in previous apps with regards to content, usability, design and the identified business concept.
