"With so many new registrations in the last couple of days, we decided to give one week of added time for contestants to submit, complete, or improve their ideas, and give innovators a chance to take the next step with their business case, " said spokesman Andreas Dippelhofer.

In the 2012 ESNC competition, more than 400 ideas were submitted from
around the world competing for a number of regional, special topic, and
prototyping prizes as well as the top award, the Galileo Master.

Last year, Fraunhofer Portugal and the University of Porto’s Faculty of Engineering
received the €20,000 Galileo Master’s prize for a new smartphone app
that augments GNSS with ultra-low magnetic field communication (ULF-MC)
for reliable navigation in office buildings, airports, underground
parking garages.
