Amsterdam joins EU’s EIP-SCC urban air mobility network

Amsterdam has become the latest city to join the European Union’s European Innovation Partnership on Smart Cities and Communities (EIP-SCC) initiative (https://eu-smartcities.eu/initiatives/840/description). The agreement to participate was signed at the first UIC2 Forum, organised by EIP-SCC members, which took place during Amsterdam Drone week (28-30 November 2018.)

The programme is in its second phase (Q2 2018- Q1 2019), defining and preparing demonstration projects. This stage will “Develop, qualify and articulate UAM business and service concepts towards integrated urban mobility solutions as part of a detailed demonstration project proposal. Decide on GO – NoGO based on partners’ commitment, project attractiveness and financing raised and secured.” The next phase will run from Q1-Q4 next year and will: “Organise execution of the actual demonstration projects across cities/regions. Derive lessons learnt from each demonstration project and make recommendations for a UAM deployment strategy and roadmap.”
