In cooperation with the GSA (the European GNSS Agency) CLGE has launched the eight edition of the CLGE European Students’ Contest for the current academic year i.e. 2018 – 2019

If you’re a student or young surveyor we engage you to take part!
If you’re a professional or a teacher: Please spread the word and motivate youngsters to take part in the contest.


The prizes are €1000,- per winner or winning team and the participation in the Stuttgart INTERGEO. But the most interesting aspect of the contest is to take part in a European event and maybe to get a prize.

This year, students can submit papers in five categories:

– Geodesy, Topography
– Galileo, EGNOS, Copernicus (or a combination of two or the three subjects)
– GIS, Mapping
– Cadastre and Property Surveying
– Students and youngsters engagement*
*this category is also open for Young Surveyors (as defined by FIG i.e. 35 years or younger or registered as surveyor since less than 10 years).

For a valid participation papers have to be sent in English till 29th July 2019, 23.00 CET, following the guidelines below.

Please notice that in all five categories group works are allowed but in case of a winning group, the prize will have to be shared.

The first four categories are straightforward and are not explained in more detail. Please notice that the second category encourages research in the field of practical applications of the European efforts in Galileo, EGNOS and Copernicus. The work can focus on one of these topics or a combination of two or even the three topics.

For the time being this academic part of the contest, i.e. these four first categories, is restricted to bachelor and master students. PhD students are not allowed. CLGE is still considering to open a new category for this kind of participants.
