Objectives: 

The project implements a set of coordinated actions to promote EGNSS technology in South East Asia (SEA), supporting the competitiveness of EU enterprises facilitating their contacts with relevant GNSS stakeholders in SEA, a fast growing market of more than 600 million people. Exploiting the facilities offered in Hanoi by the NAVIS Centre - a strategic asset for Europe, setup with FP7 EU funding - European enterprises can increase their competitiveness conducting tests of their products in a challenging multi-GNSS environment, not available in Europe, with hard ionospheric activity conditions. To reach as many interested EU GNSS companies as possible, the project activities and collaboration opportunities offered by the NAVIS Centre are carefully advertised through different channels including clusters, social networks, websites etc. and events are organized in Europe, possibly as side events of larger ones. So a larger network of long lasting relations between European companies and SEA GNSS stakeholders is built, allowing the NAVIS Centre to keep serving as a focal point for cooperation with Europe and as showcase of EGNSS technology.
