With  the Sixth (FP6 2002-2006) and the Seventh (FP7 2007-2013) Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development, the European Commission clearly identified areas of fundamental interest for GALILEO user recognition and market penetration, and brought major research-related EU initiatives together under a single comprehensive plan. FP6 and FP7 worked as key pillars in ensuring Europe is in the driving seat of Research and Development in satellite navigation, along with its industries and service application businesses. 

Aviation Agriculture Maritime Road Location-based services Rail Surveying/Mapping Education, innovation and support Precision, professional and scientific applications PRS Infrastructure & evolution

The projects developed under FP6 and FP7 developed innovation to demonstrate a clear advantage of using Galileo and EGNOS and concrete applications in the GNSS segments of location-based services (LBS), road, aviation, rail, maritime, agriculture, surveying and mapping, and timing and synchronisation.
