Targeted industrial matchmaking
A key objective of GNSS.asia is to support the creation of partnerships between industrial players in Europe and Asia-Pacific. The development of sustainable business partnerships can help the promotion of EGNSS and multi-GNSS services around the world, leading to new applications and opportunities for local businesses and citizens.
Companies in Europe and Asia-Pacific may offer complementary expertise, and the products and services developed in one region may be key enablers to solve societal challenges in the other region. For instance, key European technologies for building resilient receivers can offer advantages in areas prone to jamming and spoofing events. Skills in advanced chipset manufacturing and rapid growth in areas such as autonomous vehicles in Asia offer competencies of high interest for European counterparts.
In addition, the vast size of Asia-Pacific markets, and the high pace of development and digitalisation in these economies, affords opportunities for new services and products. Megacities and the push towards smart cities is being led by Asian economies. As such, partnerships crossing Europe and Asia-Pacific can aid competitiveness in both regions, fuelled by global trends such as the Internet-of-Things (IoT), Big Data and increased autonomy.
