In Grow internationally

As you probably know, Enterprise Europe Brussels c/o hub.brussels has been organising – since 2016 – the annual matchmaking event DroneDays at the occasion of the DroneDays Fair.

This B2B event is aimed at putting forward the civil ad commercial use of drones in traditional sectors such as agriculture, construction, health, civil security, transports, etc and facilitate business development among participants.

While waiting for the 2019 DroneDays Fair and B2B event, planned next March 15th -17th 2019, Enterprise Europe Brussels invites citizens and organisations to contribute to this consultation.

This public consultation asks for your informed opinions and suggestions to help identify what are the gains that could be brought by the use of drones and what are the concerns that would need to be addressed by EU public intervention.

It follows a previous one conducted a few years ago by the European Commission on a policy initiative in the field of Civil Drones or unmanned aircraft (UA).

Unmanned aircraft (drones) can bring substantial benefits to the society at large, and contribute to the EU’s wider objectives such as creating new jobs, the speeding digitalisation of the economy, improving environmental protection or making transport more efficient.

The questionnaire concerns the civil use of drones for public use as well as recreational and commercial activity. The use for military purposes is not covered by this survey. The term “drones” is used throughout the questionnaire referring to Unmanned Aircraft.

The questionnaire of the consultation is structured as follows:

  • Respondent’s profile
  • What benefits Drones can bring
  • Problems to be addressed
  • Market situation
  • Other issues

The results of this consultation will feed into the forthcoming delegated and implementing rules on drones and drones operations and possible future follow-up rules related to drones operations.

The online questionnaire  is accessible in all official EU languages (except Irish) and replies may be submitted in any EU language. Participants are encouraged to answer as much as possible in English though.

The consultation period is 13 April 2018 – 9 July 2018
