COSME Call 2016 - Raising awareness of civil drones' operators about Privacy and Data protection obligations COS-DRONES-2016-03-02 Closed!


The objective of the action is to produce digital materials and tools to contribute to the development of a  privacy  and  data  protection  culture  in  the Unmanned Aircraft (UA) sector in  the  European Union, taking  fully into  account the specificities  of the different  actors - manufacturers, pilots and operators - in  order  to  enable  them  to  cope  with  their responsibilities and obligations in  the  field.

These  materials  and  tools  will  address  the  specific  need of  the  UA  industry,  going  beyond  the services  provided  by  generic  commercially  available  data  protection  tools  and  complementing the awareness material proposed by the DRONERULES.EU website. The  action  will  address  only  professional  activities  performed  in the  EU  Member  states and  focus on the needs of SMEs, start-ups and entrepreneurs active in the UA field (UA professionals).


The action must provide the following key deliverables:

  • an  online  course consisting of  different  e-learning  modules  providing  a  flexible  tool adaptable to the specific needs of the trainees
  • a set of business oriented tools supporting the daily work of UA stakeholders
  • minimum 3 onsite training sessions.

Final training material must be developed in English and minimum 2 other official EU languages.
