Case studies

Drones represent a challenging area for European policy-makers, industry and regulators. In order to support the development of this emerging market, the project will build an online platform to provide start-ups, SME’s and hobbyists the necessary information about the fundamental rules governing the legal operation of drones in all EU Member States. Involved in the field of drone since 2012, SpaceTec is the coordinator of DroneRules, this new challenging project which is funded the EU COSME programme and is responsible for project management and strategic communication.

SpaceTec is and has been the leader of communication and dissemination activities in research and development projects carried out in the context of the Copernicus programme (i.e. G-MOSAIC, BRIDGES, DOLPHIN, G-NEXT and G-SEXTANT). The main activities carried out included: development of design look and feel, conception and design of websites and project leaflets, issue of specialised magazines (‘Window on GMES’ publication). In some of these projects, SpaceTec is conducting studies related to possible governance options and related cost-benefit analysis.

As member of the Project Management Board, SpaceTec was responsible for all the communication activities of the project.
