The 13th edition of the ESA/JRC International Summerschool on GNSS 2020 will be held in Krakow, in the South of Poland.

The future of satellite systems is also discussed. 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.
