From 5th - 6th February
2009 the "International Infoday on the 2nd Galileo Call in the 7th EU Framework Programme" was held in Munich, Germany. The National Contact Point (NCP) for Space and the NCP for Transport from Germany jointly organized this well suited combination of information about the call contents and meeting potential project partners for the initiation of proposals.
Participants who arrived in Munich on 5th February had been invited to take part in an industry tour to IABG where testing facilities for satellites can be visited. On the same evening a reception took place in the Munich City Hall to facilitate matchmaking.
