Flying High Challenge - drone use case briefs

The Flying High Challenge is a collaborative engagement involving up to five selected cities across the UK which aims to shape the future of urban drones and drone systems. Run by Nesta’s Challenge Prize Centre in partnership with Innovate UK, the Flying High Challenge is the first programme of its kind to convene city leaders, regulators, public services, businesses and industry around the future of drones in cities.

To inform the process of identifying relevant applications for drones in urban contexts, NESTA have shortlisted 13 specific drone use cases that could have a major positive economic and social impact if implemented in cities.
