The Project

The vision of SAFIR-Med project is to demonstrate ways to achieve safe, sustainable, socially accepted and socially beneficial urban air mobility which will contribute to the EU healthcare system, by ensuring that future generations will continue to democratically have access to the best cure and care.


Technologies of all partners will be leveraged to make use of the maximum number of U-Space services towards the highest possible operational safety level, including advanced Detect and Avoid U-space services.

The demonstrations will enable involved cities to get acquainted with their role in U-space management and keep up with relevant regulatory changes in order to use UAM technology for the benefit of their citizens.

SESAR JU Spotlight Event

The SAFIR-Med Project is proud to co-organise with SESAR JU an event that will put a spotlight on medical air mobility. 

Drone technology is rapidly evolving, and it is critical to build the infrastructure and resources necessary to ensure proper handling and trust in its use for medical product delivery. With the sudden impulse from COVID-19 and upcoming developments in EU drone legislation, the landscape is changing in favour of medical drones. As this market continues to grow, the pressure is on to make sure that drones are integrated safely and securely into European airspace (U-space).

The event will take place in a hybrid capacity with speakers and representatives from the SAFIR-MED project/advisory board joining the live event at skeyes in Brussels and the rest of the audience joining us online. This event will showcase some of the U-space services and use cases being researched, developed and demonstrated within the SESAR 2020 programme, aiming to make drone services for medical air mobility a safe and secure reality.
