The event “Opportunities for European GNSS companies in South East Asia” took place today, July the 12th 2018, in Barcelona, Spain. As the first BELS+ Training Program on GNSS Data Processing, also this event is hosted by the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya – UPC. The BELS+ partners from bavAIRia, ISMB and UPC presented the BELS+ project and the NAVIS EGNSS Demonstration Centre in Hanoi, where European companies will be able to showcase their GNSS-based solutions. European companies that already worked with the previous BELS project gave a pitch regarding their experience of working in the SEA region.

28 attendants from Spain, France, UK and Portugal participated to our event, see the following figure.

B. Deisting (see the following picture) from bavAIRia also presented the 1st BELS+ Call for Expression of Interest to participate in the GNSS Demo Centre at the NAVIS in Hanoi, Vietnam, dedicated to the European GNSS SMEs.

This event was an ideal opportunity for European producers of GNSS-based technologies and solutions to present their products and services as well as their motivation in trying to get a foothold in the South East Asian market.
