From EbS: On March 3, Galileo Application Days Conference & Exhibition is opening in Brussels. During three days, the event will feature speakers and innovations from around the world relating to satellite navigation applications.
The Application Village will be inaugurate by Antonio Tajani, EC-Vice President in charge of Industry and Entrepreneurship. The event will offer over 2,000 M2 meter public Application Village, where demonstrations and presentations of over 30 innovative uses of satellite navigation technology will occur. Visitors will get a chance to see viable satellite navigation applications developed through the EUs 7th Research Framework Programme, the European Satellite Navigation Competition, the European Space Agency Technology Transfer Programme, and national and regional initiatives, in a lively animated atmosphere.
Live demonstrations of cutting-edge satellite navigation applications and a major three-day conference promoting the use of EGNOS and Galileo will be part of the launch of the 2010 European Satellite Navigation Competition.
SOUNDBITE (French) Antonio Tajani: "We can help the citizens, for example blind people to walk in the street, we could also work in the agricultural field in order to reduce the polluting emissions. We could also rescue somebody who has fallen down in the sea thanks to Galileo. So there are tens of important applications which could guarantee an efficient use of public money which means 3,6 millions euros for the Galileo project. And I think that for 2014, we will be ready to work with Galileo, so the implementation will start in 2014."
