Seminar on Potential Uses and Commercial Applications of Galileo in Kiev.177/349
09 Feb 2009 - 19 Feb 2009
On 04-05 February 2009, STCU Senior Deputy Executive Director (Ukraine) Igor Lytvynov and Deputy Executive Director Michel Zayet (EU) attended a Seminar on Potential Uses and Commercial Applications of Galileo organised by the Twinning Project : Boosting Ukrainian Space Cooperation within the European Union.
This project working within the National Space Agency of Ukraine aims at “accelerating the approximation between Ukraine and the European Union in the area of space and to enhance legal, scientific, and industrial cooperation and development”.
There is a strong interest from the newly formed European Global Navigation Satellite System Regulatory Authority (www.gsa.europa.eu) to include Ukraine in the achievement of a fully operational GALILEO system. This includes the laying of foundations for a fully sustainable and economically viable system. Eventually the seminar gathered all major players in Ukraine in this sector with a noticeable support brought by Academician Yaroslav Stepanovich Yatskiv form the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, and STCU Governing Board Member representing the government of Ukraine.
