Dear Students,

If you are dreaming about taking part in the AMADEE 2020 mission, exchange experiences and ideas with engineers from all over the world, create projects to the ESA standards, gain an opportunity of a yearlong cooperation with a 3D SLS printers producer and build a strong, globally respected personal brand in the space sector, you must submit your application to the 4th edition of the European Rover Challenge.

The task that the teams will face is to design and build a Mars rover analogue which will get the biggest number of points in different competitions simulating Mars exploration.

ERC 2018 will take place between 14 and 16 September 2018 in Starachowice (Poland).

European Rover Challenge is the biggest space and robotics event in Europe which combines a challenge in making Mars rovers (together with URC from the prestigious global robotics league) as well as science and technology shows. ERC is a great opportunity to present your project, gain experience in creating documents compliant with the NASA and ESA requirements as well as cooperate with experts from companies operating in the space sector. After the challenge you will also have an opportunity to discuss the results with the jurors, take part in mentoring workshops as well as meet with the sponsors and investors.

The registration for ERC Student and ERC Pro challenge is open. You can submit your applications by 31 March 2018 by sending them to one of the following addresses: (Student formula) and (PRO formula). More information about the challenge and required documents can be found on the ERC website:  ERC-Student 2018 Rules and ERC-Pro 2018 Rules as well as in the ERC INFORMATION GUIDE VOL.1. You can also follow our Facebook profile.

See you on the track!
