Drone Strategy: Creating a large-scale European drone market
The European Drone Strategy 2.0, adopted today by the Commission, sets out a vision for the further development of the European drone market. It builds on the EU’s safety framework for operating and setting the technical requirements of drones, which is the world’s most advanced.
The Commission will now launch work on the Strategy’s 19 flagship actions to build the right regulatory and commercial environment for tomorrow’s drone air space and market. They include operational, technical, and financial aspects.
The Strategy also addresses issues of noise, safety, and privacy, as well as identifying areas for synergies between civil and defence drones, and for increased counter-drone capabilities and system resilience.
