In 2021 OneWeb hosted our first Innovation Challenge and the response was extraordinary. In just six weeks, more than 300 Innovators from 19 countries took part. OneWeb announced five Innovation challengers and three academic Innovators to collaborate with us on future low Earth orbit satellite technology. 

In 2022 OneWeb will continue to host and sponsor innovation programme initiatives, work closely with technology partners on both fixed and mobility solutions, as well as the range and deployment of new generation technologies, OneWeb's GEN2 network, and Position, Navigation, and Timing (PNT) capabilities.

We work closely with other world leaders in the space sector, including in association with the European Space Agency with whom we have co-hosted Industry Days in 2021.  
"ESA strongly supports innovation in the space industry to enable Europe to succeed in highly competitive global markets. We are delighted to support OneWeb's initiative to identify innovative ideas and to bring them to reality. Investing in space improves life on Earth." Elodie Viau, Director of Telecommunications and Integrated Applications at the European Space Agency.

Innovation moves fast

Each year we invite everyone to take part in Innovation Challenges that compel people to rethink design and technology, as well as come up with better, sustainable ways to use space for communications. Innovation is constantly evolving. We are too. More opportunities are coming. So keep up to speed with OneWeb and be part of this exciting journey.
