The U-ELCOME project is a Digital Sky Demonstrator in the area of Urban Air Mobility.The project has been launched with funding from the European Climate, Infrastructure and Environment Executive Agency (CINEA) in cooperation with the SESAR 3 Joint Undertaking as one of its flagship Digital Sky Demonstrators (DSDs). It is a 3-year DSD project coordinated by the EUROCONTROL Innovation Hub and involves 51 European partners.

This DSD project is part of an innovation pipeline to bridge the gap between applied/industrial research and industrialisation, and to accelerate the market uptake of U-space initial services with the involvement of early movers. It also has a strong and close connection with relevant standardisation and regulatory activities and bodies. The project involves U-space implementation and flights in Spain, Italy and France.

The focus of U-elcome is a harmonised approach and the project seeks to cooperate with other European U-space implementations to understand what is good practice and what is common practice. The Harmonisation work package will produce a handbook for U-space implementation. The aim is to write this handbook based on experience throughout Europe, within the U-ELCOME project, within the other 2 related ongoing projects (BURDI and EALU-AER) and in national implementations. In order to collect the relevant information to develop this, U-ELCOME is organising a workshop on U-space implementation.
