With the 2018 edition of the European Union’s annual Green Week taking place across Europe from 21 to 25 May it is timely to consider the contributions that the European GNSS (EGNSS) – EGNOS and Galileo – are making to improving and protecting our environment.
The European Investment Bank and Atea have signed a NOK 475 million (approx. EUR 49,3 million) loan agreement in support of the company’s research and development programme for the coming years. Over the 2018-2021 period Atea will significantly overhaul its IT platforms and start the construction of a new datacentre, as well as invest in the expansion of existing ones. Further automation investments for a new logistics centre and software development will see the financing being used across the Nordics and Baltics.
