Discover the transformative potential of UAM through the lens of these three leading Research, Development and Innovation projects.

On 22 November 2023, Flying Forward 2020, AiRMOUR, and AURORA held the collaborative final event "Elevating Urban Air Mobility" to share the knowledge and results garnered by these projects over the last three years – a testament to the advances made in the Urban Air Mobility (UAM) sector. With the culmination of these three projects, we organised this event to support future endeavours in the drone and UAM field.

The importance of disseminating the knowledge gained cannot be overstated. By sharing our results, insights, and experiences, we strived to provide a strong foundation upon which future projects can build, innovate, and expand. The UAM industry is continuously evolving, and the collective insights from our projects can significantly influence its trajectory.

The breakout sessions offered attendees a unique opportunity to delve deeper into the practical aspects, challenges, and solutions in UAM. These sessions, led by experts from our partner organisations, provided a hands-on experience and a closer look at the real-world applications of UAM.

Our lineup of speakers, coming from diverse backgrounds and expertise, shared their invaluable perspectives on the UAM landscape. Their insights, combined with interactive discussions, made this event a must-attend for anyone invested in the future of UAM. Moreover, it offered a not-to-be-missed opportunity for networking.

The conference provided a platform for meaningful conversations, forging new partnerships, and discussing the shared vision for UAM with representatives from the three projects. In a rapidly evolving industry, such interactions have and will continue to spark new ideas, collaborations, and innovations.

In essence, this conference was more than just a showcase of our achievements; it was a call to action for the entire UAM community.

Continue to be part of the conversation, and let's collectively drive the UAM industry towards a brighter, sustainable, and innovative future.

10 JOINT RECOMMENDATIONS FROM FF2020, AiRMOUR AND AURORA

The culmination of three years of dedicated research and collaboration by 34 organisations across Europe, under the banners of Flying Forward 2020, AiRMOUR, and AURORA, has led to the creation of ten pivotal recommendations for the Urban Air Mobility (UAM) community. These recommendations are the essence of countless hours of innovation and strategic partnerships, aimed at guiding local and regional authorities, the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), as well as UAM service providers and manufacturers towards a more integrated and efficient future. While not exhaustive, these recommendations are designed to spark conversations, prompt actions, and support the continuous growth and development within the drone and UAM sectors. For anyone invested in the future of Urban Air Mobility, reading these recommendations is essential. And it's not just about reading; it's an invitation to engage, understand, and contribute to the shaping of UAM's future.

Elevating UAM Final Programme   Complete Agenda

Organisation

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.
