Twenty-three developers from nine countries gathered in late September 2015 at the European Space Agency (ESA) ESRIN centre in Italy for the fourth annual Space App Camp and competition.

Each team had a week to create an app from one of five areas: agriculture, emergency and rescue management, environmental protection, marine environments and maritime transportation, or lifestyle and tourism. The teams presented their apps to a panel of judges from ESA and partner companies, who ranked the projects based on innovation, relevance, market and business value, feasibility of concept, and overall presentation.

“This year’s participants have been particularly skilled and ambitious,” said Thomas Beer, ESA’s Copernicus policy coordinator. “It was a pleasure to see them working hard and interacting with our coaches, helping them to create a perfect prototype app. I hope that each of the six groups will apply for ESA business incubator support.”
