As part of the consortium`s initiatives, the UTM SPIRE team, led by Dr. Fauzan Khairi Che Harun, organised, on 28 November 2019, Erasmus-Strategic IP Management for Effective R-I in Asian Higher Education (SPIRE2019) with collaborators from the UTM Innovation and Marketing Centre and UTM International. It was co-financed by the EU and co-created by the Higher Education Leadership Academy (AKEPT) in Malaysia. The conference entitled “Using Creativity on Ip” provided a platform to link and enhance innovation and creativity in the areas of research, innovation and commercialization. In particular, it aimed to strengthen the knowledge and skills of IP managers in DenE in providing comprehensive IP management services, to enable IP management units to provide effective IP management services to industry and the community, and to establish a network of IP managers in Asia as a reference point for all IP use efforts. Eszter Kovacs, Acting Secretary General of GUTMA, said: “This is a great opportunity to unite developing standards for UTM and U-Space around the world. GUTMA is very pleased to continue to develop its agreements with ASTM International and ISO, as these collaborations are important to this developing community. The involvement of the UTM and U Space communities is essential for current and future standardization activities. The agreement goes beyond mutual recognition of certificates and proposes that joint agreements for certification of systems and procedures be developed. According to BASA, the event was carried out as part of the consortium that aims to accelerate commercial drone deliveries and use across Europe “I am convinced that this bilateral agreement will take the relationship between Europe and China in aviation to a higher level,” said Patrick Ky, Executive Director of EASA.
“This reinforces EASA`s commitment to working closely with international partners to build a safe and environmentally friendly industry.” In theory, this will help Chinese autonomous aircraft companies such as EHang develop products at common eu-China certification levels and facilitate access for European UTM service providers to Chinese markets. As part of the agreement, both parties have established a technical coordination body called the Certification Oversight Body (COB), which will help minimize differences between regulatory systems, standards and certification processes for parties; The development, approval and revision of technical implementation procedures. … the exchange of information on key security issues and, where appropriate, the development of action plans to address them, as well as other similar provisions. The first meeting of the COB took place on 3 September. A press release from the European Aviation Safety Agency (EEA) said: “During the meeting, the parties adopted the technical implementation procedures (TIP) that will support BASA and its airworthiness annex. These administrative and technical procedures detail how EASA and CAAC will conduct the validation and mutual acceptance of civil aviation product approvals. GUTMA is a non-profit consortium of unmanned aircraft systems (UTM) to promote the safe and effective integration of drones into global airspace systems. Its role is to support and accelerate the transparent implementation of globally interoperable UTM systems. Nova Systems Asia published a YouTube summary of Singapore`s unmanned research and development activities, which gathered the results of 18 months of activity and presented by project manager Dr. Terry Martin.
