The 1st Galileo User Assembly is set to take place in Madrid on November 28-29. The event will provide Galileo and EGNOS users with the opportunity to discuss their needs, share their experience and provide feedback on EGNSS performance.
One year after the launch of Galileo Initial Services, in December 2016, EGNSS users will gather for the 1st Galileo User Assembly in Madrid this November. On the first day of the Assembly, Galileo and EGNOS users will participate in the first ever EGNSS User Consultation Platform (UCP), broken into four thematic groups - Transport, Mass Market, Professional and R&D. The participants in the thematic groups will then discuss their findings in a plenary session, to be held on the second day of the Assembly.
Improving service delivery
Participants in the event will be given a general update on the Galileo programme, along with presentations on Galileo Initial Services performance, the Galileo Services Roadmap and the Galileo User Interfaces. They will also have the opportunity to take part in the 2017 Galileo User Satisfaction Survey, through which the GSA aims to gain a better understanding of Galileo’s value to users, aiming at continuously improving service delivery. The User Consultation Platform will be covering both EGNOS and Galileo.

The GSC provides an interface for the Galileo Open Service (OS), Commercial Service (CS) and Safety-of-Life (SoL) user communities, and participants in the Assembly will have the opportunity to tour the premises and to take part in a networking reception.
