INNObyte among the founding members of the Hungarian Drone Coalition
The organisation was created at the initiative of the Ministry for Innovation and Technology, the Széchenyi István University, the Budapest University of Technology and Economics and HungaroControl Zrt. for the purpose of assisting in the development of a suitable regulatory framework and to support Hungarian companies and industry players involved in the use of unmanned aerial vehicles and the related technologies in order to improve their competitiveness at a rate that is measurable at the scale of the national economy.
- helping Hungary become a global leader in the use of unmanned aerial vehicles as soon as possible, thereby making Hungary an important point of reference for the international community;
- ensuring that Hungary serves as an example for Europe in the implementation of common European Union regulations by developing a supportive regulatory environment;
- significantly improving the competitiveness of Hungarian enterprises through the widespread implementation of unmanned aerial vehicles and the related technological improvements while respecting personal rights;
- involving a large number of Hungarian startups and small and medium-sized enterprises in the development and production of unmanned aerial vehicles and the implementation of related solutions, perhaps even in partnership with large enterprises or universities and in international cooperation;
- enabling an improvement in competitiveness at a rate that is measurable at the scale of the national economy through the widespread use of unmanned aerial vehicles and the technologies based on them.
The professional input of the coalition is also required for developing Hungary’s drone strategy to ensure that there is a favourable economic and regulatory environment to inspire technological development utilising unmanned aerial vehicles and the implementation of such technologies.
The organisation’s founding members (of which there are over 60 and include government ministries, supporting institutions and advocacy groups, as well as academic institutions and industry players) strive to cooperate to the best of their abilities and put their experience to use in their professional efforts and to work towards improving Hungary’s competitiveness in this field.
