#T-TeC 2022

#T-TeC, Telespazio's Technology Contest, the open innovation initiative open to students and researchers from universities and departments around the world, is back with many new features.

For its fourth edition, #T-TeC has been transformed into a real start-up incubator: the team that finishes first will take part in an accelerator programme, by Leonardo’s Business Innovation Factory, to develop their winning project provided.

As the previous years, the three best projects will be awarded cash prizes of different amounts depending on their final placing.

The teams taking part in the 2022 edition of #T-Tech will focus on six macro-themes closely related to sustainability in space and on Earth.

Space and extraterrestrial exploration

The competing proposals will be assessed by a panel of experts from Telespazio and Leonardo, as well as the Italian Space Agency (ASI) and the European Space Agency (ESA), which are also sponsoring the contest this year, together with the Italian Aeronautics and Astronautics Association (AIDAA), the Space Generation Advisory Council in Support of the UN Programme on Space Applications (SGAC) and the Council of European Aerospace Societies (CEAS).

In the coming weeks all the official updates related to the #T-TeC will be published on this page (Rules, deadlines and FAQs), with the aim of arriving on time for the 15th  European Space Conference, scheduled for January 2023, when the winners will be awarded.
