AiRMOUR – Lifesaving drones are coming! The Roadshow comes to Helsinki on the 4th and 6th of April 2023.

The European AiRMOUR project researches how emergency medical services could be supported by drones. Smaller drones carrying medical equipment or larger drones carrying medical specialists can be beneficial in many ways, but also create challenges. 

To validate our research, demonstrate the possibilities and start the discussions, AiRMOUR now brings a Roadshow to four cities in Europe. The Helsinki events take place in early April.

Time: 4 and 6 April 2023
Location: Helsinki
