Role in the project

In ImAFUSA, Future Needs has multiple roles. First, it leads the project management, dissemination, communication & exploitation activities, including project branding and website (logo, templates, poster, factsheet, press releases, etc), aiming to disseminate project results to a range of audiences surrounding ATM, UAM, public administrations, industry, and academia. This task will ensure the future exploitation and deployment of the project results and the continuation of the project research and innovation. Also, Future Needs has to set the scene for UAM assessment, completing a gap analysis and provide a methodology describing how the sequence of demonstrations of ImAFUSA will be executed in a standardised way. What’s more, Future Needs will provide a booklet of the use cases of the project and their expected impacts, some of which will later be quantified, setting the base for best practice in UAM application assessments. Last but not least, Future Needs leads the development of socioeconomic impact assessment indicators, like the affordability and accessibility of the services and vertiports and impact on public spaces.
