The final workshop of the EFFECTOR project was successfully organized by the SGMer and IRIT in September 15th , in the city of Toulouse and BorderUAS project was invited to be there.
During this workshop representatives from the BorderUAS project had the opportunity to be part of the discussions about the results of the EFFECTOR project that focuses on situational awareness for Maritime surveillance. They also attended the demonstration of the final EFFECTOR solution.
This event was a great opportunity for BorderUAS to meet with delegates from FRONTEX, the French MRCC, and other practitioners and thus initiate a further engagement with them through a future invitation in the BorderUAS pilots. BorderUAS is establishing an end-user’s ecosystem that will be highly welcomed during the project’s pilot workshops.
During the last part of the workshop in Toulouse, BorderUAS representatives were involved in a workshop session where all participants were divided in small groups addressing questions regarding the current status of end-users capability gaps, how to overcome their challenges and finally share recommendations for future uptakes and new innovative solutions.
We thank the organizers of EFFECTOR conference for the invitation to this interesting final event and for the collaboration with BorderUAS, especially on knowledge sharing on CISE ontologies.
