The aim of the GIANO Consortium (Galileo‐based timing receiver for critical infrastructure robustness), is to bring Galileo and EGNOS driven innovation to the GNSS‐based timing and synchronisation domain. Strongly convinced that an innovative Galileo-based timing receiver is a suitable solution to improve resilience and robustness of European Critical Infrastructures at a reasonable cost, the GIANO team will bring dedicated expertise to the design, development, testing an validation of a Technology Readiness Level 7 (TRL7) equipment that will fulfill the accuracy and robustness requirements of several timing applications. The Galileo‐based timing platform will represent a tangible test bench for innovation to be industrialised by tailoring it towards each specific application and user need.
