Interested in presenting your solution at the world’s largest mobile event? Then read on! The European GNSS Agency (GSA) is looking for innovative solutions to showcase at the Galileo stand at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona on 24-27 February 2020. Every year MWC brings together leading mobile technology developers, manufacturers, service providers and app developers from across the globe. With over 107,000 visitors expected in 2020, next year’s event will be a perfect opportunity to showcase the latest EGNSS-based innovations.

MWC Barcelona will host the latest cutting-edge technologies from more than 2,400 of the world’s leading mobile technology companies. With a programme featuring leading visionaries and investors, the Congress is a not-to-be-missed opportunity to present and promote innovative new ideas, technologies and applications and bring them to the attention of key decision-makers.

With the goal of exploring the hottest trends influencing the mobile industry, MWC Barcelona is an ideal platform to showcase and promote innovative EGNSS-based solutions and applications, such as those being developed within Horizon 2020. The congress also shows how European space research is enhancing EU industrial competitiveness and playing a pivotal role in tackling the various societal challenges facing Europe.

“MWC is an ideal chance to present your EGNSS-based solutions and bring your applications to the attention of a large audience of your peers, investors and the public at large. If you have an EGNSS-based solution with the potential to improve the lives of European citizens, then we would like to hear from you,” said GSA Head of Market Development Fiammetta Diani.

Expression of Interest

With this in mind, ahead of next year’s MWC the GSA is launching a call for expressions of interest among its Horizon 2020 and Fundamental Elements partners and other EU companies. The idea is to provide a space at the GSA stand to showcase our partners’ Galileo-enabled mobile solutions. For this edition of the congress, the theme of the GSA stand will be: “Leisure, fitness and sports applications” so priority will be given to solutions that address these markets. If you have an EGNSS-based solution or product that you would like to demonstrate at MWC Barcelona, please submit your application to market@gsa.europa.eu by 3 January 2020. Put “Interested in showcasing our project at MWC 2020” in the subject line of your email. For more information on how to apply read the Rules and Conditions.

This will be an unmissable opportunity to present your solutions to a potential investors and beneficiaries. Join us in Barcelona in February 2020 at MWC, where innovation is celebrated, connections are made, insights are gained, products are launched and business gets done!

EGNSS-based innovation

By matching ideas with opportunities and talent with available resources, MWC Barcelona helps support the GSA in its mission of linking space to user needs. In fact, from dual frequency chipsets to new smartphones, EGNSS was behind many of the technology announcements made during the Mobile World Congress 2019. 

And this: Ubiscale: low-power GNSS processing for tracking devices

What’s more, at the MWC 2019, the GSA stand featured displays and presentations on a number of EU projects, including the GSA-managed Horizon 2020 and Fundamental Elements projects Flamingo and ESCAPE, along with solutions from Lycie, Ubiscale, GEO++, Navisoc and Galileo for Mobility. Among the showcased products there was a new solution developed by Ubiscale enabling low-power GNSS sensing and position determination for IoT and a high-accuracy positioning application developed by GEO++, leveraging RTK technology in the backend to apply generated GNSS corrections to smartphone measurements.

Places at the Galileo stand will be limited, so get in touch with us as soon as possible to take advantage of this exciting opportunity!
