Do you have ideas about how to use satellite data for the security of critical infrastructures? Join the Secure Your Future Multimedia Competition! The Hague Security Delta, Koninklijk Instituut van Ingenieurs (KIVI), and technology magazine De Ingenieur challenge you to come up with ideas for multimedia applications that can improve the use of downstream information. Come up with for example a new or improved satellite application that will improve the resilience and security of critical infrastructures (e.g. telecommunication or electricity generation) or think of a satellite application that improves the efficiency of emergency services (e.g. the police or ambulance personnel). The competition is now open until the 1st of November 2015!


Everyone, including students, entrepreneurs, hobbyists, and ICT professionals, can join. Both individuals and groups can subscribe. The winner will receive a cash prize and will be assisted by the Secure Your Future partners in further developing the application into a business model, finding funds, and testing the idea in practice. Registration is open until the 1st of November 2015 via the website.
