It encompasses a series of 48, scientific, technological, engineering and management training workshops; of 90 minutes each. The workshops are clustered in bundles of three as a unique training package targeting a specific topic, application or industry and destined to a specific category of stakeholders. In addition, drones field trials/demo and hands-on computer sessions are offered for participants to provide them with practical learning experience.

Oral presentations and Posters sessions are part of the program as well as plenary sessions/keynote speeches delivered by leading researchers. Drones Synergies provide drones data via its programme “Drones Innovation SandBox™” to its network as open source, where researchers can work on the data during the whole year and come present their results during the conference. A due diligence and peer reviewed process from the scientific committee is observed, as for all respectful academic/research conferences, to assert a high quality of presentations. Research Papers are published in conference proceeding and/or selected scientific journals.
