G-Navis - Growing NAVIS

The main objective of this project is to consolidate the actions undertaken by the SEAGAL Project, which was funded in the first Galileo Call. The objective of the SEAGAL project was to set up a Collaboration Centre on European GNSS. The Centre, named NAVIS, was opened in October 2010. It is based within the Hanoi University of Science and Technology (HUST) premises and is part of it. The NAVIS-Centre is also backed by some European Research Institutions that formally committed to support and promote the Collaboration Centre. Therefore, the G-NAVIS project should contribute to the growth of the NAVIS Collaboration Centre supporting in particular actions that

  • enhance its technical and research capabilities so that it can be recognized as a valid research and innovation centre;
  • extend its links in South East Asia with a particular focus on the ASEAN Member States;
  • strengthen its cooperation with Europe, European institutions and European companies.

The actions of the G-NAVIS project will be carried out in South East Asia, in Europe and in Australia in a coordinated and complementary way. The main focus will indeed be on South East Asia and in particular on the NAVIS Collaboration Centre which has to grow in capacities and reputation. The geographical distribution of the actions of this project is as follows:

  • Research activities (relative to the project) will be conducted in the NAVIS Centre as well as in the European partner Institutions and in Australia.
  • Awareness activities, consisting in three workshops, will be conducted in South East Asia (Malaysia, Thailand, and Vietnam)
  • Training activities: consisting in One Summer School to be attended by ASEAN experts in Vietnam Training courses for Asian experts in the NAVIS Centre in Vietnam Training periods offered to South East Asian staff, post docs, and students in the European partner institutions.
