Paris, December 16, 2021

Atos today reveals the 18 shortlisted teams of its international student competition, the Atos IT Challenge, which is now running its 11th edition. This year's theme focuses on space technologies and satellite imagery.

This edition of the Atos IT Challenge has received applications from 20 countries – which makes it the most diverse edition of the contest to date, in terms of geographical representation.

The theme “To the Moon, to Mars, and to the Stars…” has been very inspiring for the applicants and truly tests their innovative capabilities. The collection of submitted ideas shows that there is a large variety of concepts related to space technologies which are yet to explored.

The 18 shortlisted teams, selected by a panel made up of members of the Atos Scientific Community, are:

In the next phase, each team will be assigned a mentor who will provide guidance and advice on how to build the proof of concept. The team will be required to build their application code to be tested by Atos Competency center in April 2022, ahead of a jury day where all projects will be pitched to down select the best teams. The finalists will then be chosen, and then a winner, which will be announced at the digital awards ceremony in July.
