ActInSpace munich || An international innovation contest lead by CNES and ESA

Munich – the home of Lederhosen and …. the international AIS Contest!

Bavaria’s capital city has a lot more to offer than just pretzels and Oktoberfest - such as the ActInSpace Contest in Munich.

This international event is a great opportunity to spend a fun weekend with like-minded enthusiasts and gain access to EO data, business coaching, and other benefits. With on-site technical support provided by Copernicus App Lab (an H2020 project), this free event gives participants the chance to develop their ideas.

The region’s various lakes and spectacular Alps are just around the corner, as are the well-known aerospace locations of Oberpfaffenhofen and Munich itself. The area features a wide range of aerospace companies, including the German Aerospace Center, OHB, Airbus, and of course, AZO.

AZO Anwendungszentrum GmbH Oberpfaffenhofen, the organiser of the event, is an international networking and branding company that has initiated some of the world’s most important space-related innovation competitions. These events now boast more than 15,000 participants, over 200 industrial and public stakeholders, and some 400 more participating entities around the world.
