In October 2016, the Danish Government launched the Danish Drone Strategy focusing on the civilian use of drones. Six ambitions to enhance the development and use of drone technology are presented in the strategy and one of the central ambitions is to promote the internationalization of Danish drone research and industry.

For this reason Innovation Center Denmark attended AUVSI XPONENTIAL – the biggest unmanned event in the world with more than 7000 people participating – in Dallas, Texas three days in May. Both representatives from universities and more than 20 industries – from agriculture, energy, and security to broadcasting – attended, which provided the optimal setting for Innovation Center Denmark, Silicon Valley to search for potential international collaborators for the Danish drone research environment.

Hvert år afholder den amerikanske videnskabsforening AAAS en konference om aktuel forskningspolitik i USA.

I marts 2017 var der to centrale emner på dagsordenen: 1) Trump administrationens udspil til store nedskæring af en række af de største forskningsprogrammer i USA og 2) Trump administrationens afvisning af videnskabens indsigter og resultater om klimaforandringer. Det sidste punkt var så afgjort det, der bekymrede deltagerne mest.

Trump administrationen offentliggjorde tidligere på året et udspil til nedskæring af en række af de store føderale forskningsprogrammer som National Institute of health, DARPA, NOAH m.fl. ifølge udspillet skulle nogle programmer reduceres med 10% andre skulle helt lukkes. Selvom det er meget markante nedskæringer, der ville påvirke amerikansk forskning meget betydeligt, var det ikke det deltagerne var mest bekymrede over. Ændringer i de føderale forskningsprogrammer skal godkendes af kongressen. Disse store nationale programmer har normalt bred støtte på tværs af demokrater og republikanere og derfor er forventningen, at forskningsprogrammerne ikke bliver beskåret på de niveauer som det Hvide Hus har foreslået.
