Review of the event - A big thank you to all participants!


In the first part of the event general information about the network was given and the activities in phase 1 were presented. Phase 1 ended at the end of August. Phase 2 of the network was applied for three more years. A commitment from the funding institution will be expected in November/December 2021.


In total there are 16 national and 7 international partners in the network on this point of time. Three of these partners (OffTEC, Airsenso and Rademacher Composites) had the opportunity to introduce themselves at the event.


In the second step, information was given on the future activities in the network. An overview of planned projects was given. Projects can be added to the roadmap and the priority can also be changed. The goal in the network is to organize national & international workshops in short intervals according to specific topics & funding programs.


Mr. Araya from the Aalborg University presented his project idea "Fuel cells for uavs". In the first part, he explained what a fuel cell is and what the difference is between a normal fuel cell and a battery. Then Mr. Araya presented the activities of Aalborg University and the areas in which he wants to implement his fuel cells. Mr. Behnke presented three possible international funding programs (Eurostar’s, Interreg Baltic Sea Region, Interreg North Sea Region) for this project idea in the next year.


Some visits to some of the network partners have already been made, more are planned in future. We are looking forward to the next event with you!
