In recent years, demand for civilian drones has exploded. Public and private sector stakeholders have been mobilising in France to take their shares of this high potential global market, which is at the intersection of several industries: aerospace, robotics, connected objects, etc. However, drones remain a relatively recent innovation and many of their future uses are still in the experimental stages. The French state, the Paris region council and the “Cœur d’Essonne” agglomeration community provide support for the Paris region’s drone sector through the “Drones Paris Region” business cluster.
