Special feature: Galileo applications: what lies ahead. This issue of the research*eu results magazine celebrates the European GNSS for all the benefits it can bring to the EU, but most importantly reflects on its potential by shedding light on some of the first Galileo-enabled technologies that will see the light of day. Results from eight projects are presented, covering key sectors including transport, infrastructure works, smart cities, logistics, disaster management, maritime surveillance and citizen-oriented applications. This first issue of 2017 also brings a new classification of... results that we think better reflects the whole spectrum of domains of exploitation supported by EU research programmes. A total of 12 sections — some permanent and some rotating depending on their proportional weight in EU funding — will now appear in this magazine: Health, Agriculture and Forestry, Aquatic Resources, Environment, Energy, Transport, Space, Security, Information and Communication Technology, Society, Industry and Fundamental Research.
