ActInSpace competition rules

Article 1: Organisation

This competition is organised in France by the CNES, Centre National d'Etudes Spatiales, a public
industrial or commercial institution, Paris B 775 665 912, having its registered office at 2 place Maurice Quentin 75039 PARIS CEDEX 01 France. The CNES is also the design authority of ActInSpace, which
mainly includes a decision-making role for the overall communication plan, planning of the event,
competition rules and coordination for the drafting of topics.

Its extension to Europe and internationally is carried out under the aegis of the ESA by the ESA BIC
Sud France which is in charge of the operational aspects in cooperation with the CNES. A national
organiser will be in charge of the organisation in each country, and a regional organiser will be in charge of the organisation in each city.

This competition is called ActInSpace®.

with the provisions of these rules or a legal or regulatory provision.

Article 6: Terms of participation

websitewww.actinspace.org or the CNES website https://entreprises.cnes.fr/fr/actinspace or the website
of the national organiser, after approval by the CNES and the ESA BIC Sud France).

The regional organiser for the competition events of May 25 and 26, 2018 and the CNES, for the
international final, reserve the right to refuse access to the buildings of the competition sites to persons
who are not registered on the abovementioned official website. Registration implies irrevocable

Registration and participation in the contest is free in France, but each national organiser is free to plan
for its country, with the written agreement of the CNES, access fees for which it will be the sole
beneficiary and exclusively responsible for managing.

Article 7: Constitution of teams and allocation of topics

The constitution of teams is carried out freely and will not be imposed by the organisers. The rules for
forming teams are as follows:

- a maximum of 2-5 people per team
- the organisers encourage the formation of teams with different profiles and specialities: 1st,
2nd, 3rd year, master's, other schools and universities, etc.

Single candidates will be helped by the regional organiser to form a team before or just at the beginning
of the regional competition events. Regional organisers may arrange a meeting between the candidates
before the weekend. The teams will choose freely their topic from among the challenges proposed. A
presentation of the topics will be posted online at least one month before the date of the event. When
registering, candidates will be asked to indicate the topics they are interested in to anticipate the number
of experts needed per area. The presentation of topics will be supplemented until the official opening of
the competition and the teams may change their choice of topic until the start of regional events. Several
competing teams can develop the same topic.

Article 8: Confidentiality and intellectual property of developments

Participants are duly informed - and acknowledge - that the organiser does not guarantee the
confidentiality of the information contained in the project files submitted.

The organiser advises participants to take all measures they deem appropriate to protect the information
or technical elements they hold likely to be the subject of intellectual property rights, prior to participating
in the event.

Participants undertake to inform the organisers of any intellectual property rights they hold, and which
are enforceable against the exploitation of work done within the framework of this competition to meet
one of the challenges.

Participants are reminded that all information or technical elements they hold and which are not covered
by intellectual property rights are part of the public domain.

Regarding software developments, candidates retain full ownership of the intellectual property rights on
software developed within the framework of the competition, and exclusivity of commercial exploitation.

However, they authorise the organisers to use, for the sole purpose of promoting the competition and
candidates, excerpts from these developments, in a form to be decided between the candidate and the
organisers, for example in the form of a screen shot, limited access to the development for non-
commercial purposes or any other form defined by mutual agreement to allow good communication on
results of developments made during ActInSpace, without affecting the ownership and exclusivity of the
commercial exploitation retained by the candidates.

Article 9: Assistance in preparing project files

Several teams of mentors who are experts in different areas (project management, business creation,
design practices, etc.) will be made available by the organiser to assist candidate teams who wish, on
the competition sites.

Article 10: Designation of regional winners

Each team will present its project to a jury during an 8-minute presentation which will take place at the
end of the competition. The duration of the presentation may be modified on the proposal of the regional
organiser with the agreement of the CNES. The assessment criteria for each project focus on the
following points:

- use of space data or technologies. Non-compliance with this criterion is eliminatory.
- the innovative and original nature of the project (product, service, incremental, radical and
architectural, technological and organisational, business model, social innovation)
- the expected benefits of the project (relevance of the project to major social issues, etc.) in
particular in terms of creation of services and employment.
- the validity of the economic model to generate income (maturity of supply and demand, reliability

analysis, etc.)

- the jury's special prize

The CNES determines the relative weight of the criteria and will give this information to the organisers
and the candidates. At the end of this presentation, the jury will meet and designate the three winners
of the regional competition including the regional winner. A higher or lower number of winners may be
decided by the jury depending on the special prizes each region will be entitled to propose.

These criteria will be assessed confidentially and on a discretionary basis by a jury of qualified persons
appointed by the regional organiser.

The participants irrevocably acknowledge:

- that they have been informed that the rules do not provide for any recourse regarding the

constitution or decision of the jury

- that jury deliberations are confidential and will not be disclosed to participants.

regional winners and this jury will deliberate to select the ActInSpace 2018 national prize and any special
prizes in the country. Presentations will be made in the language chosen by the national organiser.

One or more teams from each country will represent this country at the international final according to
the quotas below:

From 1 to 7 participating cities in a country -> 1 national representative
From 8 to 14 participating cities in a country -> 2 national representatives

The CNES in consultation with the ESA may propose adjustments to these quotas according to the
quality of the proposed answers.
