On the basis of a Regional Strategy for Podkarpackie Region 2014-2020 were identified the following issues that could be improved under the policy instruments we have adressed:
awareness of how important are innovative solutions in the frame of RIS sectors, how Unmanned Aerial Systems are important in many areas of life, needs in increasing the level of cooperation between relevant stakeholders such as regional development agencies, regional and local authorities, enterprises, R&D centers, clusters, universities and technology and business incubators- manifested so far by a small number of joint projects of innovative knowledge, know-how, skills, technical knowledge, procedures, methods in the field of UAS.
