„Application of drones at large scale“

The UAV DACH - unmanned aviation association invites you to this year's EUROPEAN DRONE FORUM in Cologne on 15 November 2021. Representatives of European authorities, industry, operators and users of the innovative technology will meet at the conference.


The EUROPEAN DRONE FORUM (EDF) has been bringing together an international audience interested in the legal, operational, safety and technical aspects of unmanned aviation since 2018. This year, EDF2021 will take place in Cologne. The conference is organised by UAV DACH e.V. - unmanned aviation association in cooperation with European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and the German Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure (BMVI).

Discussions on the application of the harmonized European laws IR (EU) 2019/947 for the operation of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAS) and the planned airspace integration "U-space" system are eagerly awaited. EASA has invited representatives from all aviation authorities in Europe to share their experiences to date. The industry will demonstrate innovations in technology and application during the conference. In addition, an exhibition provides practical information about systems, networking opportunities and expands the theoretical discussions with real systems and services.

The EUROPEAN DRONE FORUM will end in a drinks reception, to consolidate what has been discussed.
