For its first edition, #T-TeC - Telespazio Technology Contest involved students, PhDs and researchers in the major departments at Italian universities that work together with Telespazio on innovative technological matters in the aeronautical and space sector.
#T-TeC, with the contribution of e-GEOS, will back multidisciplinary ideas, proposals, and projects covering 10 technological themes that are important to Telespazio, broken down into the macro areas of Space, Network, and Earth.
In 2019, #T-TeC participants competed on several technological themes in three different competition categories:
- "Insight", assigned with the greatest scientific-technological contribution in one of the three thematic areas;
- "Voyager", assigned to the best proposal capable of transversally embracing two or more themes;
- “Opportunity”, assigned to the most innovative proposal which is not feasible in the short term.
