Kick-off meeting at Istituto Superiore Mario Boella on June 9th, 2015, Turin, Italy

The main objective of the BELS project is to facilitate the breakthrough of EGNSS technology, with a particular focus on South East Asia (SEA), conducting a set of coordinated activities for awareness raising and capacity building which are cooperatively implemented by different European and Asia-Oceania actors such as universities, research and technology transfer centres, governmental agencies, companies and industries. The project has a strong focus on industrial partnership and support to enterprises.

Kicking off in June 2014, BELS project activities span a 3-year period (2015-2018). During this period, it is expected to pave the way to introduce Galileo services to South East Asia region, as well as for European companies to enter the new market of this region. BELS is funded by the European Union within Horizon 2020, the EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation, under grant agreement no 636853. The H2020 calls related to Galileo are managed by the European GNSS Agency – GSA.

NAVIS Centre will fulfill its role as the linking entity between between Europe and SEA in the field of GNSS by supporting the BELS project. Positioned in an area with highest multi-GNSS coverage, NAVIS has the unique potentiality to offer. Its peculiar geographic position (excellent visibility of all the GNSS systems today available in the world, the so-called Multi-GNSS environment, and high ionospheric activity) makes it a perfect site to test GNSS solutions of European companies so as to make them ready for the global market.
