European Drone Forum
12 October 2020
This year’s EUROPEAN DRONE FORUM (EDF) by UAV DACH e.V. will be offered as a blended event. In addition to the classical face-to-face style conference (held under covid-19-regulations) there will be access to a video conference made available for those who prefer to join us online.
The EUROPEAN DRONE FORUM is dedicated to the specific needs of the drone community. The focus will be directed at acceptance as well as safe and commercial operations of Unmanned Aircraft Systems. Renowned experts from politics, business, legislation, research and development will provide valuable insights on current questions and topics. EDF will probably provide one of the few windows of opportunity in 2020 for discussions and exchange of ideas, aimed at addressing tasks and challenges facing the unmanned aviation industry, while identifying new opportunities. The main emphasis will need to be put in particular on the operation of unmanned systems within the framework of the European legislation, in order to be able to initiate further strategies and encourage business models and technological developments.
