Drone-Rules.EU Consortium : RPAS-related Awareness Creation & Understanding The Legal Environment
The Drone-Rules.EU project aims at building a comprehensive and high quality online presence in order to create THE reference web portal in the European Union (EU) (+ Norway and Switzerland) with the purpose of increasing awareness and facilitating understanding of the legal environment and constraints in relation with light RPAS operations (safety, privacy and data protection, insurance, etc.), with a focus on non-commercial operators (incl. hobbyists). The project will also facilitate access to the European market for commercial operators intending to use RPAS in their home country, or in other EU countries, and showcase the opportunities for economic and job market growth that RPAS represent for entrepreneurs and Small & Medium-sized Enterprises
The Drone-Rules.EU project has three objectives:
- Design online educational and training material intended to increase awareness and knowledge of commercial and non-commercial operators about the regulatory framework applicable to the use of light RPAS in the European airspace, as well as informing them on the potential safety, liability and privacy risks associated to RPAS operations.
- Collect, elaborate and monitor information from all EU Member States (+ Norway & Switzerland) to present the requirements related to Light RPAS operations in the areas of privacy & data protection, operational safety,liability and insurance requirements.
- Develop & deploy a comprehensive, engaging and accessible web library that will act as a one-stop-shop for the RPAS community (existing stakeholders and potential new entrants). The portal will be available in five EU languages (English, French, German, Italian, Spanish) with country-specific information on RPAS rules and regulations translated in the language of the concerned Member State. The portal will also showcase success stories and best practices, so as to increase the uptake of RPAS technologies by small & medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in new entrepreneurial ventures, as well as their acceptance by civil society. In order to maximise the impact of the project, the Consortium will actively promote the platform by organizing training sessions & promotional events.
