Accelerating the Potential of Drones for Local Government


On Wednesday 26th May, U-Flyte’s Lead Investigator, Prof. Tim McCarthy, will present at Dublin City Council’s “Accelerating the Potential of Drones for Local Government” project, funded by the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform’s Public Sector Innovation Fund.   

From discovering innovative new use-cases, to bolstering public trust and safety, this project will explore how Councils can use drone technology to deliver better, safer and more efficient services.   

With support from our partners the Irish Aviation Authority, the Local Government Management Agency, U-Flyte and Smart Dublin, this ambitious new initiative will be launched with a free, open webinar on May 26th from 10am – 11am.  

This event is open to everyone – from the public, private, academic or other industries interested in the future potential of drones technology.
