The Flying Forward 2020 consortium consists of partners from different sectors with varying backgrounds, experiences and skills. By combining these qualities, we are able to deliver state-of-the-art technology and a best-in-class approach in order to solve the current Urban Air Mobility (UAM) challenges. We are grateful to have so many supporting partners with great track records in the field of emerging technologies and that they are implementing these in society, thus creating value for everyone in the UAM ecosystem.
The goal of this consortium is not only to achieve its goals but also to reach out to and collaborate with different players globally in order to bring UAM to the next level. While we are testing our solutions in Living Labs, we are able to interact frequently with its end-users and citizens in general. We believe that being successful means having a positive impact on the daily lives of all people in Europe. We believe that the way forward lies in creating sustainable partnerships.

The collaboration among the three EU-funded research and innovation projects under the Horizon 2020 programme – FF2020, AiRMOUR, and AURORA – represents an alliance in the Urban Air Mobility (UAM) sector. From the outset, we established a compact network aimed at fostering knowledge sharing and mutual promotion of our projects. This cooperative effort was designed to synergise our initiatives within the UAM ecosystem, leveraging our collective strengths to address common challenges and advance the field. As our projects progressed, this collaboration evolved into a dynamic exchange of insights and methodologies, setting a benchmark for interdisciplinary cooperation. Our joint efforts have not only accelerated technological and regulatory advancements within UAM but also cultivated a rich dialogue among industry stakeholders, academia, and regulatory bodies.
To celebrate our achievements and mark their conclusion with significant impact, we jointly organised the "Elevating Urban Air Mobility" conference. This final gathering was not just a showcase of our work but a forum to share knowledge, results, and recommendations with the broader community of stakeholders. It symbolised the passing of the torch, inviting others to continue building on the solid foundation we have laid. This collaboration underscores the power of unity in innovation, setting a precedent for future endeavours in UAM and beyond. As we conclude our projects, we look forward to seeing how researchers, innovators, and policymakers will take the insights and advancements we have provided and propel the UAM sector into new heights of success. Our legacy is a testament to the high potential of collaborative research and innovation in shaping the future of urban mobility.
