From the Australian Outback to Luxembourg, the GRAVITY Challenge will see innovators tackle world changing problems as varied as climate change, marine conservation, healthcare supply chain management, and urban traffic flow.
Registrations are now open until 27 April for space tech enthusiasts interested in solving challenges of one of 12 organizations across the globe. Deloitte firms from Australia, Japan, the United Kingdom, the United States, Germany, France, Luxembourg, Austria, Poland, Hungary, Romania, and the Czech Republic have collaborated and invited innovators across the world to participate, making it one of the furthest reaching space innovation programs in the world.
“In our discussions with the various space actors in Luxembourg and the rest of Europe, we are delighted to see how motivated companies are to take part in this GRAVITY challenge. I can only encourage space players to register for this or any future session and to post a challenge or respond to one. This is a great opportunity to demonstrate the Luxembourg space ecosystem’s diverse skills to the rest of the world,” explained Thierry Bovier, Partner at Deloitte Luxembourg.
“For many years now, Luxembourg has been an internationally recognized environment for space start-ups to grow their business. GRAVITY challenge is a great occasion to link space with more traditional sectors and help companies and innovators find solutions together using space data. We look forward to our European companies benefiting by enhancing their reach and finding the best applications of ideas and solutions to “earth” linked problems,” added David Osville, Partner and TMT Leader at Deloitte Luxembourg.
GRAVITY Challenge is a global technology innovation program that uses space technologies, including satellite imaging and the internet of things, to tackle the global problems of today. Now in its third year, this program connects innovators, entrepreneurs and universities with businesses and governments that have real-world challenges to solve, using space enabled data, technology, and capability.
The GRAVITY HQ is hosted at the Lot Fourteen innovation precinct in Adelaide—the epicenter of Australia’s space industry, supported by the South Australian Government, and home to the Australian Space Agency.
