Students across the WACREN region and Africa are invited to join the competition to name the new EU Space Constellation.

The new constellation of satellites are expected to enhance internet connectivity speed and coverage for Europeans as well as governments, businesses and citizens of Africa.

It will also be a technology-setter, integrating the latest advances in terms of security: Secured transmissions and secured communications notably with quantum technologies.
