Space and youth: looking for a name for the EU’s space-based secure connectivity system

Thank you banner

What if you personally could give a name to the newest space-based project developed by the European Union to bring high-speed internet and secure communication services in Europe, Africa and beyond?

The European Commission has just launched a competition inviting students from the EU and African Union countries to propose a name for its space-based secure connectivity system.

Alongside Copernicus and Galileo, this new system will be the third pillar of EU’s Space Programme bringing satellite data and services to address the most pressing issues of today: climate change, green and digital transitions, security and resilience.

The competition is held under the patronage of European Commissioners Thierry Breton, Commissioner for the Internal market and Space, and Mariya Gabriel, Commissioner for Innovation, Research, Culture, Education and Youth.

Organised under the umbrella of the European Year of Youth, the competition is a great opportunity for young people with creative and original ideas to find a name that captures the spirit of this new initiative, its technological innovation, and its EU-Africa dimension. A chance to become part of the European space adventure!

More details about the Call for ideas and conditions of the competition are available here.

Deadline for submissions: 31st July 2022 23:59 CET

Good luck!
