Virtual Swiss Drone Industry Tour

Switzerland offers ideal conditions for drone companies thanks to highly innovative researchers, close collaboration between academia and industry as well as pragmatic regulations. The open source software PX4 (Pixhawk), which was developed at ETH and has become the gold standard for drone control, is only one of many examples when Switzerland has carried out pioneer work in the field. The country has established itself as a leading location for innovation, testing and deployment of UAV technologies in a highly regulated but “open skies” environment.

The Virtual Swiss Drone Industry Tour is a four-part webinar series that was co-organized with Greater Geneva Bern area (GGBa), our partner organization in Western Switzerland. The webinars give a representative idea of the opportunities and possibilities in the Swiss drone industry including insights from top-notch experts from leading companies, R&D institutions and regulators.
