The aim of this Green Paper on Satellite Navigation Applications,
which addresses all stakeholders, is to launch a discussion on what the public
sector can do to create an appropriate policy and legal framework for supporting
the development of satellite navigation applications, beyond the financial
support for research and the creation of infrastructure.
This Green Paper sets out the framework within which
satellite navigation applications are developing and outlined questions for
debate. It aims to prompt new ideas from industry, public authorities, consumer
groups or consumers themselves in order to define concrete targets and the most
appropriate public sector action with regard to GNSS.
A set of questions on applications development, on privacy
and ethical issues, on the regulatory environment and others is raised
throughout the document: the replies will be analysed by the European
Commission, and used as basis for recommendations to the Council and Parliament.
