Launching a Pan-European UAM Projects & Initiatives Community to Foster Sustainable Development of the UAM ecosystem
Urban Air Mobility (UAM) projects and initiatives across Europe are increasingly on the rise. Whether they are projects funded, or practical initiatives supported, by the European Union (EU), Member States or Local Authorities, they all have an impact on cities and regions across Europe.
The primary purpose of this community is to support the European Commission by bringing together local, national and EU-funded projects, along with initiatives and regulatory bodies focusing on Urban Air Mobility, to cross-share knowledge and lessons learnt. Additionally, the community seeks to involve local authorities from cities and regions, organisations from the public and private sector, knowledge institutions and research and development entities from all over Europe.

To embrace and accelerate these developments, Horizon 2020 projects managed by CINEA, namely, AiRMOUR, ASSURED-UAM, AURORA and FF2020, together with the UIC2 of the EU’s Smart Cities Marketplace, have launched the EU UAM Projects & Initiatives Community and already gathered support from projects under H2020, SESAR Joint
Undertaking and the CIVITAS umbrella. More projects and initiatives at European, national and local level are invited and are welcome to join this newly established community.
