The Best Service Challenge aims at increasing the awareness of existing Earth monitoring services and their benefits to citizens.

For this Challenge all submissions are welcome which address any of the relevant application fields, including: Agriculture Management, Automotive, Emergency Management, Environmental Protection, Marine Monitoring, Mobile Applications, Renewable Energies, Tourism/Leisure.
The evaluators will focus on creativity and market needs rather than on the technological perfection and business case of the ideas submitted.
ESA APP CHALLENGE
The European Space Agency (ESA) will award the best application idea that uses Earth observation data on mobile devices. Proposals shall address one or more of the main thematic areas of the European Earth observation programme Copernicus (land monitoring, marine monitoring, atmosphere monitoring, climate change, emergency management). ESA is looking for ideas that can be implemented quickly into a profitable business. There are plenty of possible ways to enrich apps with data from space.
