About Multimedia Competition Secure Your Future (Edition 2015)
The 2015 edition specifically focuses on ideas for multimedia applications that incorporates the use of satellite data for the security of critical infrastructures. Participants, ranging from students to entrepreneurs, are asked to invent or develop an app, game, website, video, presentation or other multimedia application. The application does not necessarily have to be fully developed. A concept or idea that is clearly explained in a presentation will also be accepted.
Participants design their application keeping the following challenge in mind:
• Come up with a new or improved satellite application that will improve the resilience and security of critical infrastructures (e.g. telecommunication or electricity generation)
• Think of a satellite application that improves the efficiency of emergency services (e.g. the police or ambulance personnel)
The winner will receive a cash prize and will be assisted by the Secure Your Future partners in further developing the application into a business model, finding funds, and testing the idea in practice.
