Creating the 21st-Century Spatial Ecosystem
Flying Forward 2020 (FF2020) is a collaborative three-year research and innovation project developing a new Urban Air Mobility (UAM) ecosystem aligned with the Digital Government Transformation (DGT) of European countries, which focuses on incorporating drone operations within the geospatial data infrastructure of cities.
Building and incorporating all related data from UAM infrastructures and operations within the digital infrastructure of cities allow society to fly forward in a safe, secure and effective way. This will make life easier and cheaper and will also provide more opportunities for getting products faster and more efficiently across Europe.
FF2020 is creating an entire state-of-the-art geospatial Urban Air Mobility ecosystem, which includes a governance model and framework; a regulatory framework; a geospatial digital infrastructure; a Digital Toolbox; an Identity of Things (IDoT) scheme; and an interoperability framework.
FF2020 is carrying out demonstrations in the cities Eindhoven, in Zaragoza, Milan, Tartu and Oulu.
Meet the partners of the international multi-disciplinary team behind the Flying Forward 2020 consortium.
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 from a practical perspective and to interact with various stakeholders from the Urban Air Mobility ecosystem to find solutions for current UAM challenges and new opportunities.
Demonstrations in 5 European cities
12 consortium partners from 6 countries
6 million EUR funding from the EU
3 years is the project run - from Dec. 2020 through Nov. 2023
