Galileo Committee is born in 2003 with the specific goal to propose a serious candidature for the City of  Turin as official venue for this  European Agency or at least as one of the site, where its infrastructures will be placed. 
Galileo is a European initiative which has a twofold objective:

  • to give a European contribution to the future world navigation and satellite system (GNSS: Global Navigation Satellite System);
  • to provide industries, companies, citizens and European civil society with high technological services in order to make the European system much more competitive at the international level.

Turin seems to have a strong concentration of actors with specific skills in the space, telecommunications and information technology market sectors. 
Galileo Committee has been constituted with the participation of the following institutions as official promoter: the City of Turin, The Province of Turin, The Region Piedmont, the  CCIAA, as well as the operational organ FinPiemonte; here, there is a technical-scientific work group, where the University of Turin, the Polytechnic and the National Institute “Galileo Ferraris” are actively involved.  The contribution by enterprises and research centers of the territory is also welcome.
