Dronea - is a member of the Informal Drone Experts Group
Asociacija Dronea has been appointed by the the Directorate-General for Mobility and Transport as a member of Informal Drone Experts Group (E03533).
The Group will assist the Commission in the preparation of its “Drone Strategy 2.0 for a smart and sustainable unmanned aircraft eco-system in Europe”. The EU Drone Strategy emerges in light of the European Green Deal, Smart and Sustainable Mobility Strategy, Digital Strategy and other Union policies.
Dronea - became a part of Alliance for New Mobility Europe
Alliance for New Mobility Europe (AME ), the European association of public and private companies that aims to implement the Drone Strategy 2.0.
The association's objective is to integrate the new mobility community with sector studies and the application of new shared initiatives for an ecosystem of the Unmanned sector increasingly aware and coordinated between technological evolution and implementation of EASA regulations.
With the close collaboration of SESAR (Single European Sky ATM Research) and other European institutions, the Alliance for New Mobility Europe works to guarantee the integration process between the players in the sector and facilitate the sharing of new programs, systems and applications for advanced mobility and supporting an ever more complete maturation of the drone market.
Dronea is a founding member of Joint European Drone Associations
On November 12th, 2021, six European drone-related associations gathered in Brussels to put signatures on the document creating JEDA.
The Joint European Drones Associations, a new policy-oriented partnership of European drone-related associations is established to promote the interests of the growing number of stakeholders engaged in the operation, production, research and development, service, and applications of all kinds of UAS in Europe. Currently, it unites more than 17 national associations.
Mr. Kairys, Chairman of Dronea has been elected as Vice-President of JEDA.
Asociacija Dronea is registered in the EU Transparency Register
The Transparency Register is a database listing ‘interest representatives’ (organisations, associations, groups and self-employed individuals) who carry out activities to influence the EU policy and decision-making process.
It is designed to show what interests are being represented at EU level, by whom and on whose behalf – and the resources devoted to such interest representation activities (including financial support, donations, sponsorship, etc.)
This is why the European Parliament, the Council of the European Union and the European Commission have established the Transparency Register – to enact our commitment to openness about the groups and organisations that try to influence the formulation or implementation of EU policy and legislation.
Asociacija Dronea is registered in the Transparency Register under the TR ID number 437607744336-83
Dronea - a part of European Network of U-space Demonstrators
The network, launched by EU Transport Commissioner Violeta Bulc, dedicated to become a forum to share knowledge on how to keep drone operations safe, secure and green.
The network is a forum to share knowledge on how to keep drone operations safe, secure and green.
It focuses on “U-space”: a system that connects all drones flying in the air and that makes all drones visible for authorities and citizens.
The network is run by EUROCONTROL and supported by EASA and SJU.
Joining the EU Demonstrator Network would bring the following concrete benefits for DRONEA:
Aquisition of Best Practice
Sharing „Lessons Learned“
Assesments of Impact
