The objective of GIC-BR is to present and raise awareness on GALILEO, the European GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System), and show related opportunities in Brazil for companies, organizations and institutions. Established and funded by the European Union, the Center offers support and a privileged entry point for Brazilian stakeholders (industry and services) to establish partnerships and explore the wide range of GNSS applications available relying on GALILEO.

The vision of the ARIADNA Project is that Public Transport is not just buses, subways, trams, intercity trains, taxis, etc., but the cornerstone of urban mobility of the future in its broadest sense, including more and more “shared mobility” and new disruptive paradigms like MaaS. And that future comes with a series of challenges that must be faced today.

GALILEO already offers better positioning accuracy and reliability in urban environments, together with new security features, such as authentication, which allow a range of new applications and services, namely in the field of urban mobility and public transport, which will drive economic growth in Europe and beyond.
