The Drones-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 (SMEs).
The Drone-Rules.EU consortium has received the support of key RPAS stakeholders in the EU (national RPAS associations, manufacturers, operators, service providers, etc.), thus ensuring that the impact of the project will be maximized across the EU, thanks to a strong network of multipliers.
The Drone-Rules.EU project is the result of the call for proposals «COS-RPAS-2014-2-03: Facilitating access to regulation for Light Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS) launched by the European Commission Executive Agency for Small & Medium-sized Enterprises (EASME). It started on 1 October 2015 and has a duration of 24 months.
