The workshop on European Global Satellite System (GNSS) Research and Technology Development (RTD) will be organised by the European Commission in collaboration with the European Space Agency (ESA) and the European GNSS Agency (GSA).
This event is being held to consult stakeholders of the European GNSS community on RTD areas of potential interest to be funded under Horizon 2020 in the period 2015-2020.
The scope includes Galileo/ EGNOS infrastructure, mission and services R&D, GNSS signals, and basic GNSS RTD.
Please note that receiver and applications R&D will not be covered in this workshop
The workshop will consist of six topical sessions, during which stakeholders from industry, SMEs, academia, and technology institutes are solicited to discuss and define important lines of GNSS research. Register Here by entering you e-mail address.
