It is the objective of this Summer School to provide the attendees with a comprehensive overview on satellite navigation, starting from the GNSS system, its signals, the processing of the observations in a receiver and finally determining the position-navigation-time (PNT) solution. Many lab work will be carried out to get attendees really “hands-on”. Main emphasis will be put on the development of a group project using innovative ideas and covering all aspects from the idea, business plan, technical realisation till the marketing of the product or the service.
The goal of the App Camp is to promote the development of mobile applications that facilitate the use of Earth observation data on smartphones - particularly data from ESA's and the European Union's ambitious and joint Global Monitoring for Environment and Security (GMES) programme. Experience in integrating this type of data, however, is not necessary to participate in the App Camp.
The European Parliament will host a five-day conference on “EU Science: Global Challenges, Global Collaboration” (ES:GC2), starting on March 4th, 2013, in Brussels. The conference will bring together science policymakers, scientists and industry representatives from 100 different countries and will place EU research at the centre of the international response to global challenges. It will be convened by ISC - Intelligence in Science, in association with the Irish Council Presidency and in conjunction with Mr Sean Kelly MEP and other Members of the European Parliament.
AIP-6 aims to increase the use of GEOSS resources by end-users in applying
both in situ and remotely sensed data, and by extending results from previous GEO
developments through integration with the GEOSS Common Infrastructure (GCI). The
specific goals of AIP-6 are to:
1. Increase Societal Benefit Area (SBA) use of GEOSS resources by endusers
2. Increase the availability of GEOSS resources
3. Focus on benefits and usability for Developing Countries
4. Strengthen previous GEO results and technical achievements

Aim: To introduce the principles of the operation of GNSS and its limitations and applications. We include information about all currently known GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite Systems):
– Global Positioning System (GPS)
– GLObal NAvigation Satellite System (GLONASS)
– GNSS under development (e.g. GALILEO, BeiDou, etc.)
Generic topics include millimeter accuracy positioning and kinematic GNSS, Atmospheric monitoring, GNSS Reflectometry.
