The conference program will provide first-hand insights to the current planning of Europe’s authorities. Experts will provide answers to upcoming questions for UAS manufacturers and operators. And there will be time and space to network on-site and to get in touch with the most valuable contacts – after a long period of non-face-to-face communication an outstanding opportunity.

As a participant of the EUROPEAN DRONE FORUM you will

  • Meet experts from the European National Aviation Authorities

  • Find out details about the European U-Space approach to the use of high-traffic airspace

  • Learn how to transfer benchmark applications to your industry and technology

  • Take home technology insights that will help implement UAS in your organisation.

Why joining the European Drone Forum:
It has a very attractive and diversified agenda covering experience from National Authorities with Regulation 947, development of U-space regulations by EASA, outstanding UAS operations and key UAS technologies. It would be a great opportunity for me to update my knowledge and network with the Drone community.
Yves Morier, former EASA certification directorYves Morier, former director of EASA
