Flying Labs

We co-create and facilitate a network of local knowledge hubs in Africa, Asia and Latin America to build on existing expertise in drones, data and AI, the “Flying Labs®” network. The goal of Flying Labs is to accelerate the positive impact of local aid, health, development and environmental solutions locally. Flying Labs also expand local markets by creating new jobs and businesses that offer robotics as a service and support local ecosystems. Flying Labs are directly connected to each other, sharing lessons learned and best practices across the globe, training each other and working on joint projects. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KsVJzyhQJ5U
