Steering Committee EUKA
The steering committee of the Flemish drone cluster EUKA consists of the chairman, a team of representative companies, the Captains of the Drone Industry, the cluster team and a number of observers from federations, knowledge institutions and the Flemish Governement. The steering committee’s mission is managing the activity and planning of EUKA, whilst making sure that the cluster fulfills the needs of the drone industry.
“Willemen Group is constantly building a better future. That is why I think it is important I take a leading role within the EUKA Drone Cluster, which is a perfect fit with our company vision. I want to help drone companies and drone end users to question all that exists in this new tech to better accommodate the fast changing market needs.
We need to have the ambition to bring together all the stakeholders in the drone industry. This way they can work together, share experiences en strive to be better time over time. EUKA will provide the ideal platform to do just that. But its succes will greatly depend on the enthusiasm of entrepreneurs such as myself.
The possibilities of the drone technology of the future is limited only by our imagination. And with that being said, I foresee many beautiful things in this business!”

Knowledge Partners & Confederations
EUKA’s Knowledge Partners & Confederations contribute with their expertise in innovation and technology in the set-up of numerous innovation projects within the new drone industry. Together with other actors in the drone community and in various sectors such as construction, agriculture, security, logistics, etc., their research perspective helps stimulating and supporting the innovative cooperation initiatives.
EUKA’s commercial partners also add their expertise to the EUKA steering committee, albeit from a very different point of view: that of an industry that is going to work with the new drone technology. They have knowledge of market segments in the various sectors such as construction, agriculture, security, logistics, etc., which enables us to be able to focus on exactly those projects and events that specifically support the drone industry.
