UKraine Replication, Awareness and INnovation based on EGNSS
The UKRAINE project was established in January 2015 to capitalize on opportunities for partnerships created by the finalization of the EU-Ukraine Cooperation Agreement in the field of Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS). It was created with the aim of strengthening Europe’s position as a major space player with Galileo and EGNOS in the Ukrainian market of GNSS applications, by laying the groundwork for research and development as well as commercial alliances between existing entities. Achieving these objectives will create business opportunities in Ukraine for both national and European companies, as well as generating public benefits for the Ukrainian economy and society.
Key components to the project are preparation of the Ukrainian aviation market to the extension of EGNOS, identification of legislative options to support the uptake of European GNSS, development of solutions for multimodal logistics and dangerous goods transport, and fostering commercial relationships between enterprises in both Ukraine and EU Member States.
Significant Ukrainian stakeholder involvement will be ensured by:
• direct participation of the Ukraine State Space Agency (SSAU), National Aviation University (NAU) and Technical Polytechnic of Kiev (KPI)
• workshops specific to the various work packages
• events held in Kiev and Brussels to create business matchmaking opportunities
• a unique contest launched in April 2015 to develop applications using EGNSS
The UKRAINE project intends to demonstrate and document best practices that can be replicated in other national GNSS markets with an extensive communication campaign. A final project conference will be held in Brussels to present milestones achieved in the areas of legislative framework, technological advances and procedural innovations.

The matchmaking workshop which took place in The Hague during the European Space Solution Conference was concluded successfully. The ultimate objective of establishing matchmaking opportunities between Ukrainian and European commercial entities was largely achieved.
Foreseeable development of GNSS use in high potential sectors such as aviation and multi-modal logistics has been encountered.
The networking-prone atmosphere of the workshop favoured the creation of new connections and potential work relations for future projects where GNSS could play a major role.
