Don’t let the name fool you… it’s not just about apps! Tackle a challenge using data visualisation, design, tell a story with satellite images, analyse Earth data, and apply your own specialties! Inspire each other while you learn and create using apps, stories, design and, most of all, let YOUR ideas flourish. Use your creativity, skills and knowledge, team up and solve some problem that is relevant either for you, your country or for the whole world!

This year Earth Observation is the main topic! Space Apps is your chance to experience, experiment, and explore solutions to our universe’s biggest challenges! Use global satellite remote sensing and other global data as an ingredient to solve problems that matter. We are looking forward to a super interesting, exciting fantastic weekend again!

The event is free!
