Growing NAVIS aims to consolidate the actions undertaken by the SEAGAL Project, funded in the Galileo-2007 Call, with the objective to set up a Collaboration Centre on European GNSS in South East Asia. The Centre, named NAVIS, was opened on 1st October 2010 in the premises of the Hanoi University of Science and Technology (HUST). While based in Vietnam, the Centre should expand its action to the whole South East Asia and in particular towards the ASEAN Member States. Growing NAVIS supports the growth of the NAVIS Collaboration Centre enhancing its technical and research capabilities and extending its links in South East Asia and Europe for a better cooperation with Europe, European institutions and possibly European companies. In fact, Growing NAVIS expands the SEAGAL consortium adding new partners from Malaysia and Germany and starting cooperation with Australian organizations. NAVIS is in a Region that will be soon exposed to a multi-GNSS environment with features that will not be available elsewhere in the world. Cooperating with NAVIS European research institutions access such interesting environment while promoting the development of the Centre with mutual benefits. The actions of the project will be carried out in South East Asia, Europe and Australia in a coordinated way. The main focus will be on South East Asia and in particular on the NAVIS Centre which has to grow in capacities and reputation. It is important to stress that funding granted through the Growing NAVIS project will be primarily oriented to the fulfillment of activities that are beneficial also for Europe such as the creation of solid links between European and ASEAN Institutions, allowing the Centre to become a “window” on South East Asia for European stakeholders. The goal of this project is to sustain the growth of NAVIS and the diffusion of European GNSS research and technology in the South East Asia Region.
