On 3-5 March, the European GNSS Supervisory Authority will be organising its Galileo Application Days.  The  event, to be held in Brussels, is a unique opportunity for GNSS veterans and novices alike to learn, see and experience the first great strides that have been achieved in this exciting emerging and technological area, in its relative infancy.

During the dedicated session on road on Friday 5 March, two ERF projects will be promoted. This will be a unique opportunity to get better acquainted with GINA (GNSS for INnovative road Applications), and SCUTUM (SeCUring the EU GNSS adopTion in the dangeroUs Material transport) projects. Apart from presentations delivered by the project coordinators, Sara Guitierrez (GMV) and Antonella Di Fazio (Telespazio), two dedicated project stands (GINA and MENTORE) will be available during the whole duration of the Galileo Application Days.

Furthermore, you will be able to:

  • Find out about new GNSS R&D funds available through the 3rd FP7 call for proposals to be launched later in 2010
  • explore the world of innovation in the Application Village where you can: race against Formula1 drivers on a gaming console, detect urban pollution on location, get real-time pictures and videos from a flight robot, and experience first hand how new GNSS innovations will make our lives safer and more sustainable, our businesses more efficient, and much more.
  • Present your application idea in an Elevator Pitch and get direct expert feedback on technology and the market.
  • Meet the partner regions of the European Satellite Navigation Competition in the Regional Pavilion and learn how they can support the development of your GNSS application idea or find business partners through their specialized networks.µ
  • Get an overview on GNSS test beds across Europe, get to know ESA's Technology Transfer Programme, get access to the European Network of      Living Labs, make use of the ESSP EGNOS Applications Help Desk, and more in the Exhibition Area.
