For 13 years, H-FARM has been the innovation platform that supports the creation of new business models and the digital transformation and education of young people and Italian companies. H-FARM is the most important innovation centre in Europe, established in 2005. A one-of-a-kind hub where Human Factor, Entrepreneurship, Innovation and Education are combined together. H-FARM has been the first in the world to adopt a model that brings together investments, business consultancy and digitally augmented educational programs all into one place. BOLD Awards will be hosted in the events room and the evening will continue on the terrace together with lots of surprises.

At NewSpace2060, we have entered the EU-Japan NewSpace2060 Illustrated Haiku Competition 2019 for the Space Frontier Bold Award.

This category is open to any aerospace-related organization who has made a significant contribution using collaborative techniques to advance R&D or developing strategies leading to new technology development and exploitation.  The award will also recognize the lasting benefit created in the aerospace field and legacy of the project resulting from a high level of collaboration which goes beyond delivering the technical aspects of the project.

Nominees will be picked based on the following: Level of Impact 40%, Scalability 30%, Transparency 20%, H-factor 10% (Human & Social).

NewSpace2060 is about engaging NewSpace startups and instead of running a technical competition, I decided to curate a competition that would be open and accessible to all through the medium of haiku and illustration.

It has been an interesting and challenging experience, yet the goal is about space outreach, engaging entrepreneurs and young talent to show case their creative skills.  I believe that NewSpace is open to all and I particularly want to encourage ‘A’ in the discussions of ‘STEAM’ when we discuss space.

EU- Japan NewSpace2060 Illustrated Haiku Competition 2019 is currently exploring art exhibition opportunities to show case talents from around the world, be it entries from entrepreneurs, children or adults, scientists, non-scientists, anyone interested in the theme of ‘Improving Life on Earth as in Space’, haiku, illustration or space is welcome to enter.

Supporters of the EU- Japan NewSpace2060 Illustrated Haiku Competition 2019 are invited to support us for the Space Frontier Bold Awards here.
