CHALLENGES

The challenges

Plenty of partners are providing challenges for this 3rd worldwide edition of ActInSpace. To help you make your choice, the challenges have been subdivided into different categories.

#Every Day Life Business: Get your business off the ground thanks to space technologies
#Space4.0: Become a NewSpace player and improve the space sector thanks to ‘earth technologies’
#Humanitarian: Find a way to put the Space Sector at the service of humanitarian causes

A label has been attributed to each challenge #AIS-IN or #AIS-OFF. Pay attention to this label.

If you’d like a chance to win the Grand Prize, or some of the partner prizes targeting entrepreneurial projects, our advise is to choose a challenge with the #AIS-IN label.
If you'd like to have fun, change the world or want to win some of the partner prizes not strictly targeting entrepreneurial projects: Challenges with the #AIS-OFF label are made for you.

Keep in mind that the classification of the challenges is just there to help you, it’s just an indication… Be imaginative, nothing is impossible with an open mind and the best projects might be hiding in the #AIS-OFF label !
