The SmartPilots project has come up with a number of policy recommendations in support of Shared Pilot Facilities and their users.

Find out what these policy recommendations are by watching this video:

SmartPilots Policy Recommendations:

1. Invest wisely and focus on maintaining and further developing existing facilities to keep their state-of-the art equipment up-to-date.

2. Create mechanisms to encourage usage of already existing shared pilot facilities, even if these are located outside their own region.

3. Increase coordination and collaboration between pilot facilities, improve users’ awareness of the available facilities and avoid overlapping investments in Europe.

4. Encourage companies to work together with SPFs from an early stage, for example by giving small and medium-sized companies vouchers for collaboration.
