GIC Mexico participates in the World Engineering Summit 2022!
WES, a meeting place to share experiences and up-to-date knowledge on the future of engineering, climate change and innovative technologies.
From March 4 to 11, 2022, several high-level speakers and engineering professionals gathered at the World Engineering Summit, which was held in San José, Costa Rica. It was attended by 550 people from 43 countries.
The main objective of this year’s event was the presentation of a wide variety of proposals that encourage professionals to generate solutions for situations caused by climate change, as well as seek opportunities for global socioeconomic growth. With this objective, three thematic axes were defined: Engineering of the Future, Climate Change and Innovation+Technology+Sustainability. The Galileo Information Center for Mexico, Central America and the Caribbean participated in the event, developing activities to promote EGNSS programs, in particular Galileo, for engineers and the general public.
On Friday, March 4, the keynote address “European Global Navigation Satellite System and Key Applications” was given virtually by the Center’s coordinator, María Mota Rodrigo. The talk, which was very well received by the attendees, focused on highlighting Galileo’s differentiating factors and the applications and market segments that benefit from the use of this system, providing great added value.
Similarly, on March 7 at the Costa Rica Convention Center there was an information stand and supply of brochures with information on the activities of the Center, the European GNSS system and its areas of application. Engineer David Aguilar Vargas and Miss Diana Chaves, from the Center’s team, participated in such a stand.
The event has made possible to give great visibility to the EGNSS programs, through contact with multiple people from companies and institutions in the area and by disseminating the activities of the Galileo Information Center for Mexico, Central America and the Caribbean.
