The overall objective of the project is building capacity in the field of multi-modal applications, focused mainly on aviation using European Global Navigation Satellite System (EGNSS) in different Eastern European and Mediterranean countries. More specifically, the project aims to Promote the use of EGNSS outside the EU in neighbouring countries and stimulating investments in EGNSS; Prepare these countries for an optimal adoption of EGNSS and thus contributing to the increase in knowledge of EGNSS outside the EU; Support networking between EU and non-EU players, from industry, institutions, research, academia, higher education and creating a basis for cooperation and business opportunities in EU neighbours; for aviation and other fields.
