In the frame of the event, two training sessions were held to promote the benefits of EGNSS technologies in the ITS sector. These sessions were dedicated to Administrators and Officers on the one hand, and to ITS Developers on the other. It was a great opportunity to share ideas and relevant aspects of the European GNSS and its efficiently use for the development of ITS Applications.

“The European GNSS Village was a unique opportunity for the JUPITER Project to demonstrate the many benefits of GNSS to key decision makers, public authorities and representatives of the global
ITS industry,” said Hanna-Kaisa Saari, Project Coordinator of JUPITER from Aerospace Valley. “Through these demonstrations and interactions, we were able to maximise the visibility and competitiveness of European GNSS to the ITS sector.”
