The Danish UAS Ecosystem – a Gateway to Europe
Learn about the benefits of the Danish UAS ecosystem and the possibilities to establish a Nordic presence in Denmark.
Join us at HC Andersen Airport Odense to learn about the benefits of the Danish UAS ecosystem and the possibilities to establish an European presence in Denmark.
Meet stakeholders from the drone industry and kick-start your collaboration with the Danish drone industry and the Danish Defence, learn about the exceptional UAS / C-UAS test facilities and how easy it is to set up a business in Denmark. Explore how the already established robotic cluster has made Denmark and Odense to the center of highly skilled labor within both SW and HW and much more.
This event will take place the day after The International Drone Show so take advantage of this unique possibility also to get insights about the UAS and drone industry from thought leaders in the business and learn about future drone applications.
Also on August 29, it is possible to participate in an informal drone community meetup dinner in the City of Odense. Please sign up for this event on the sign-up page. The meetup takes place at Storms Parkhus from 18.30.
