DESCRIPTION OF TOPIC GALILEO-2007-4.3-01
International Activities
International co-operation is an essential dimension designed to ensure that maximum benefits are derived from the Galileo Programme. Recent evolutions stress the importance of an appropriate framework to support the initial definition and implementation of actions with third countries interested in Galileo. The range of these actions is likely to be broad including the assessment of regional needs, institutional, technical and market analysis, demonstrations and awareness activities. Different actors need to be involved from third countries and Europe. This makes the international cooperation a fundamental part of the Galileo Programme.
The Galileo Programme is being built with a strong international cooperation component. It offers countries across the world a number of opportunities to participate in and benefit from Europe's development of Galileo. The European GNSS Supervisory Authority, in charge of managing Galileo Research & Development activities under FP7, attaches therefore particular importance on the international dimension of the Programme. Indeed international scientific and technological cooperation enables both Europe and third countries to benefit from mutual knowledge and expertise exchange, and paves the way to closer political and economic relations.
In this context, it is proposed in this topic to reinforce the international dimension of the Galileo R&D framework and to initiate a deeper level of technical cooperation.
