On Tuesday January 24th, 2017 the first EU Drone Awards were presented at the European Parliament in Brussels. The EU Drone Awards are an organisation of the European Young Innovators Forum (EYIF) with the goal of boosting the European drone industry.
Out of 50 candidates from 14 countries 9 finalists were selected in 3 categories: Best Drone Manufacturer, Best Drone-based Application and Best Emerging Drone Company.
Unifly was presented with the award of Best Emerging Drone Company. This category awards the most attractive European emerging company taking into account market potential, impact of the solution, team, European dimension and technological innovation.
Unifly was very honoured to receive the Best Emerging Drone Company award. We see it as recognition of everything we have achieved so far and as extra motivation to continue on the chosen path.
The EU Drone Awards are a great way to put innovations and new developments in the drone industry in the spotlight and give young entrepreneurs a well-deserved boost.
