The future of transportation is changing rapidly, and urban air mobility solutions are at the forefront of this revolution. The RECIPROCITY workshop on ‘Innovative Urban Air Mobility Solutions’ is an excellent opportunity for industry leaders, policymakers, and researchers to come together and discuss the latest developments in this field.

The workshop will take place online and promises to be an engaging and informative event. The agenda includes a range of exciting presentations, such as the European Drone Strategy 2.0 by Giancarlo Crivellaro from the European Commission. Attendees will also have the opportunity to hear from Renske Martijnse-Hartikka, Project Manager at Forum Virium Helsinki, who will share her experiences and insights about the Helsinki use case. Sunil Budhdeo, Transport Innovation Manager at Coventry City Council, will also present the Coventry use case, focusing on E-VTOL in an urban environment. Participants will also have the chance to discuss the possibility of replicating them in other cities.

After the presentations, there will be a Q&A session and working group discussions on how to replicate the presented cases. The workshop will conclude with a wrap-up and presentation of results, including a market analysis for innovative urban air mobility by Antonio Invito, Innovation & Business Analyst at PNO Consultants.
