WHY AN EENA NETWORK?

During the last years, EENA has been one of the leaders in the field of public safety and drones.

It has already been almost 3 years since we launched pilot testing in Europe with DJI during Phase I of the EENA/DJI programme. Phase II concluded its results a few months back with the publication of our Drone Efficacy Study. In the meantime, we’ve worked on different documents (such as the use of drones by emergency services) and we’ve had the very first EENA Drones & Public Safety Summit 2018.

Thanks to our members and our partners, we have learned a lot. So the time has come for us to create this dedicated platform for you.
