AMU-LED was selected to participate in the 11th Conference about Horizon Europe, the new research and innovation program in the European Union which was held on 6 April in Valencia (Spain). More than 1,300 attendees discovered the opportunities of the Horizon Europe program and could get information about European projects coordinated by Spanish entities. The opening session was led by the General Director of Research and Innovation from the European Comision, Jean-Eric Paquet, and the Spanish Minister of Science and Innovation Diana Morant, among others political personalities.
AMU-LED showed in its poster the main highlights of the project: the demonstrations in UAM, that are going to be in the following months, the urban air mobility safety regulations and its principal expected impacts.
The conference had different panel sessions to discuss about topics related to Horizon Europe. Among them, panellists talked about some programme novelties, different participation strategies and they also gave advice about how to submit better proposals. In parallel, areas for particular consultancy with National Contact Points and bilateral meetings were also set up-to promote networking among the attendees.
Having AMU-LED in this Conference gave us the opportunity to make the project and its partners, more visible to the public, since many people approached the poster showing their interest. In the end, we were able to also show the progress of Urban Air Mobility in the society.
