Join the ESA Space App Camp 2014

on 28 January 2014

The Romanian Space Agency (ROSA) invites 20 innovative developers with experience in app development to apply for the Space App Camp, organised by the European Space Agency (ESA) between 4 and 12 May 2014, in Noordwijk (near Amsterdam), the Netherlands. The Space App Camp is an opportunity to spend a week with like-minded people, learn how to integrate satellite data into mobile applications, and gain insight into ESA's work.

The participants in the Space App Camp will be selected based on the creativity of their previous works with regard to content, usability, design, and the underlying business concepts. Those interested will need to include links to published apps (Android or iOS platforms) and other references in their applications.

During the Space App Camp, the participants will be provided with access to satellite data designed to help them develop mobile applications in five predefined categories

The goal is to come up with working app prototypes that use data from Europe’s satellite navigation (GalileoEGNOS) and Earth observation (Copernicus) programmes on mobile devices. Experience in integrating such data is not required to take part in the Space App Camp.

Those interested can apply in the Space App Camp via an online registration form until 3 March 2014. Participants will be able to choose their preferred category, and can apply as teams of two or four. Those applying as teams of two will be grouped accordingly into teams of four.

Further information on the Space App Camp is available at www.app-camp.eu.
