Our SAFIR-Med project is celebrating its nomination for the SESAR Digital European Sky Awards 2023 in the demonstration research category, after a selection process that initially involved thirty contributions. The jury assessed the degree to which project deliverables are demonstrating excellence in technological innovation, their potential to have a positive long-term impact on ATM performance, as well as their overall contribution to the SESAR programme.
Future Needs is proud not only for this nomination but also to have contributed significantly in bringing together the SAFIR-Med Consortium and coordinating the proposal writing but also to create a first approach for the alignment of UAM with Smart City concepts and standards by leading the development of a UAM (Urban Air Mobility) Smart City Indicators Framework. Future Needs is also leading the Communication and Dissemination activities of the project and was really excited to receive the “Dissemination Prize” by SJU, for outreaching our goals and setting our project as an example for the SESAR projects.
On behalf of all the project partners that made this possible, we are honored to be among the projects that SESAR selected as the most successful in showing the benefits of SESAR innovation in live operational contexts, helping to secure stakeholder buy-in and with potential to have long-term positive impact on #ATM performance. We are looking forward to our next steps and to a meaningful contribution for the society in this field, as our UAM projects BURDI –also managed by SESAR JU- and UAM School 4Cities are already in progress and two more are going to be announced soon.
