Creating the 21st-Century Spatial Ecosystem
Flying Forward 2020 (FF2020) is a collaborative three-year research and innovation project developing an entire state-of-the-art Urban Air Mobility (UAM) infrastructure by incorporating this new form of mobility within the geospatial digital infrastructure of cities.
Building and incorporating related data from UAM infrastructures and operations in cities' digital infrastructures will allow society to fly forward in a safe, secure and effective way. This will make life easier, cheaper, and will also provide more opportunities for getting products faster and more efficiently across Europe.
The UAM infrastructure FF2020 is developing 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.
The seventh module of our free online training programme, "Integrating a New Spatial Ecosystem: Steps Towards Urban Air Mobility", was developed by our consortium partners, EuroUSC Italia, INSPIR8ION, Digie and Serendipity. "Module 7: Law, Regulations and Standards" trains its audience on current EU developments and major trends in the field of UAM, the leading authorities involved in these developments and how to provide support for UAM policy. EuroUSC Italia developed the training with the aim of contributing to the scalability of UAM in a European setting considering the objectives and key results of the FF2020 project. This module is the fifth of seven independent units from the course to be published this year.
Demonstrations in 5 European cities
13 consortium partners from 6 countries
6 million EUR funding from the EU
3 years is the project run - from Dec. 2020 through Nov. 2023
