PRESTIGIOUS is an European Projet funded by COSME and launched in Septembre 2020.
Led by 4 European cluster : ANDALUCIA AEROSPACE Cluster Empresarial, Cluster Drones Paris Region, Normandie AeroEspace (NAE), Skywin Wallonie, its goal is to strengthen the competitiveness and sustainability of Drones SMEs in Europe.
PRESTIGIOUS will target two market segments : Inspection and Security, looking for each one at both VLOS and BVLOS applications.
The project will focus on four non-European countries (Chile, Nigeria, Equatorial Guinea and Canada), selected to meet the needs and service offer of European SMEs.
PRESTIGIOUS will implement four main actions.
- First, the UAV value chain will be assessed to identify the strengths of European SMEs.
- Second, the consortium will organise three fact-finding missions to identify stakeholders / potential end-users outside Europe.
- Third, individual support will be provided to SMEs in Europe and training seminars will be organised to transfer the intelligence gathered.
Finally, the consortium will prepare a joint internationalisation strategy and implementation roadmap to establish an ESCP on UAVs.
Through these actions, PRESTIGIOUS will support at least 100 SMEs working on UAVs in Europe.
