UKraine Replication, Awareness and INnovation
based on EGNSS
The UKRAINE project was established in January 2015 to capitalize on opportunities for partnerships created by the finalization of the EU-Ukraine Cooperation Agreement in the field of Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS). It was created with the aim of strengthening Europe’s position as a major space player with Galileo and EGNOS in the Ukrainian market of GNSS applications, by laying the groundwork for research and development as well as commercial alliances between existing entities. Achieving these objectives will create business opportunities in Ukraine for both national and European companies, as well as generating public benefits for the Ukrainian economy and society.
Key components to the project are preparation of the Ukrainian aviation market to the extension of EGNOS, identification of legislative options to support the uptake of European GNSS, development of solutions for multimodal logistics and dangerous goods transport, and fostering commercial relationships between enterprises in both Ukraine and EU Member States.
On March 17, NTUU “KPI” hosted the 2nd Progress Meeting of UKRAINE project team. The members of the consortium discussed the progress in implementation of project tasks, the achieved results and the upcoming milestones. The experts from the European GNSS Agency (GSA) and from the European Comission were present at the meeting and evaluated the overall status of the project. Apart from project results, the team also discussed other oppurtunities and perspectives for application of project achievements. At the end of the meeting GSA and EC experts made the final speech congratulating the team with successful work and expressed their hope for further frutiful and unhampered realization of the project.
