Flying Forward 2020 organises together with AiRMOUR and AURORA the workshop ‘Navigating the Opportunities & Obstacles in UAM’.
On 14 December 2022, these three EU-funded projects will join forces to present the findings of their first use cases and insights from the projects from a practical perspective. By interacting with various stakeholders from the Urban Air Mobility ecosystem, we aim to find solutions for current UAM challenges and new opportunities.
Before diving into each use case, Miguel Martí Vidal, Aviation Project Manager (H2020-Horizon Europe Transport Research), will explain the importance of drone use cases and living labs as a test bed for emerging technology before their application in cities.
The workshop will also showcase each project’s challenges and how they overcame them. With these insights and participants’ perspectives, we aim to identify new opportunities from challenges in UAM. By discussing our practical experience with stakeholders, we aim to contribute to the knowledge expansion of the required infrastructure for the implementation of Urban Air Mobility in Europe. In addition, we seek to continue expanding our network through these interactions to promote cross-collaboration and knowledge sharing between projects and the whole UAM ecosystem.
The breakout sessions will focus on the following topics:
Breakout session 1 – The role of the regulatory framework in automatic and autonomous flights
For whom it is interesting: Policy-makers and (inter)national authorities
Breakout Session 2 – The hiccups of technology maturity in the UAM/UAS industry
For whom it is interesting: UAM/UAS industry
Breakout Session 3 – Accepting a new vision for our cities
For whom it is interesting: Public representatives and citizens interested in how drone technology can support public services.
Choose the breakout session most suitable to your interests and needs and connect with others to brainstorm and find opportunities in the current challenges of the applicability of drones in cities. We invite you to take an active role in our projects’ UAM developments!
