The Ministery for Innovation and Technology, Széchenyi István University, the Budapest University of Technology and Economics (BME), and HungaroControl, along with more than 60 other parties have established the Hungarian Drone Coalition, which seeks to encourage the wide-spread use of drones, operated safely and in a supportive legal framework, it said yesterday, according to napi.hu. 

The task of the coalition is to provide a forum for drone developers, users, and policymakers while promoting development, education, and testing through an initiative dubbed DroneMotive. 

The coalition will set up workgroups and organize conferences. Minister for Innovation and Technology László Palkovics said the aim is to establish a strategic framework similar to those set up in Hungary for 5G and AI technologies. 

The coalition can help Hungary tap the economic potential of drones, he said, adding that the European Commission estimates that more than 100,000 people will be employed in areas related to drones in 20 years.
