The response to the 1st PUSH open call for Innovation Development presented a rich diversity of expertise, covering a wide range of areas related to drone technology. The majority of applicants consisted of start-ups and small-medium enterprises (SMEs) exploiting drone services and technologies as well as companies operating in the field of artificial intelligence (AI) and the Internet of Things (IoT). 

Additionally, the 1st ICAERUS PUSH open call attracted proposals from diverse fields, ranging from research and development, to aerospace, to drones in agriculture and information technologies.
