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.
Curious about the results of the FF2020 demonstrations in Eindhoven, in Zaragoza, Milan, Tartu and Oulu?
Meet the partners of the international multi-disciplinary team behind the Flying Forward 2020 consortium.
On 22 November 2023, Flying Forward 2020, AiRMOUR, and AURORA held their final event in Luxembourg – a platform to showcase the future of Urban Air Mobility through the lens of these leading Research and Innovation Action projects aimed at sharing our combined insights. The importance of disseminating our existing results was clear: To build upon them in order to support the acceleration of UAM's growth. With industry peers and project partners present, we delved into how our projects overcame current challenges in the field and shared our final recommendations for the future of UAM. By distributing our knowledge, we pave the way for continuous innovation.
Demonstrations in 5 European cities
13 consortium partners from 6 countries
6 million EUR funding from the EU
The project run is 39 months: From Dec. 2020 through Feb. 2024
