Flying Forward 2020 (FF2020)

Creating the 21st Century Spatial Ecosystem - Horizon Europe

Flying Forwards 2020 (FF2020) is a collaborative three-year research and innovation project developing an entire state-of-the-art Urban Air Mobility (UAM) infrastructure by incorporating this new form of mobility within the geospatial digital infrastructure of cities. Building and incorporating related data from UAM infrastructures and operations in cities’ digital infrastructures will allow society to fly forward in a safe, secure and effective way. This will make life easier, cheaper and will also provide more opportunities for getting products faster and more efficiently across Europe.


Goals & Objectives

  1.   Ease the integration of Urban Air Mobility into the legal and regulatory framework.
  2.   Enable the interoperability of a geospatial digital UAM infrastructure across cities.
  3.   Develop a governance model, interoperability frameworks and Identity of Things (IDoT) scheme.
  4.   Facilitate the implementation of Urban Air Mobility services in cities based on European principles. 
  5.   Identify strategies to foster replicability and scalability.
  6.   Provide open access to project results to promote knowledge transfer within the Urban Air Mobility ecosystem
