Judging Criteria

A network of more than 190 international experts from industry and research will be entrusted with evaluating the ideas submitted in the European Satellite Navigation Competition 2013. Complete entries will be judged by the expert panels of the respective regions in which they are submitted and - if the participant chose a special prize - by the expert panel of the respective special prize partner. All experts assigned to evaluate the ideas submitted will be required to sign a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) before the ideas are put forward for evaluation.

The judges will assess the ideas based mainly on the following criteria:

  • Potential benefit(s)of the idea
  • Innovation level
  • Significance of the use of GNSS in realising the idea
  • Technological feasibility
  • Availability of a prototype
  • Chances of becoming a commercial success
  • Investment potential
  • Time it would take to implement (time to market)
  • Legal risks
  • Advantage(s) compared to other existing/conventional solutions
  • Patent eligibility
