The European Aerial Uptake project calls for the drone ecosystem to improve the social acceptance of this technology

The day, open to the general public, explored the different visions and degree of knowledge of the UAS of the attendees through a virtual dynamic

The second intersectoral drone technology workshop of the European Aerial Uptake project took place on 13 May. In virtual format, participants performed a dynamic to work on the ethical and social aspect of the ecosystem with the aim of improving the vision and acceptance of UAS by citizens and the market.

The session gathered the different points of view of the attendees, among whom, in addition to industry professionals, there were also people interested in aircraft, companies, potential technology aggregators and a representative of the public administration.

The Aerial Uptake project aims to promote the assimilation of RPAS technologies through the exchange of experiences and good practices. The meetings of each participating region are key to knowing the territorial reality and working on future improvements. Catalan participation in the project is coordinated by the Generalitat de Catalunya and i2CAT.

Aerial Uptake is part of the INTERREG EUROPE international cooperation program within the European Territorial Cooperation objective framework, co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).
