The primary aim of GNSS.asia is to develop and implement industrial cooperation between the Global Navigation Satellite System industries of Europe and Asia-Pacific. GNSS.asia has a long history of creating partnerships through industrial matchmaking and outreach events including workshops, industry seminars, delegation visits, and roundtables. Aside from industrial cooperation, we have supported institutional relations through our network of partners. We regularly support coordinate standardisation and cooperation efforts for our local institutional partners, as well as promoting the benefits of European GNSS as service enables and enhancers in the multi-GNSS hotspots of Asia-Pacific.

GNSS Market Intelligence – Introducing the GNSS.asia market profiles
Selecting a market to enter can be a daunting task, especially for European SMEs looking to expand globally. In order to combat this, we have created a series of market profiles that cover the GNSS landscape in the Asia-Pacific region, including a market overview, key opportunities in each of the downstream applications, the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats specific to the region, key stakeholders, and even information on the region’s contributions to multi-GNSS in Asia.
Introducing the GNSS.asia Soft Landing Programme
As part of our service offer, we also are running the GNSS.asia Soft Landing Programme, a programme designed to empower European start-ups to access markets globally and stay competitive in the ever-evolving environment. This year, we are supporting 7 of Europe’s boldest GNSS start-ups as they begin an ecosystem exploration mission in Asia-Pacific in 2021. We provide intensive mentorship, an ecosystem exploration mission, and workshops and training to assist in their internationalisation efforts.
