Dear AMCHAM members and friends,

The question of "Good or Evil" drones has been on the agenda for some time now and AMCHAM, in cooperation Digital Lëtzebuerg, the lead sponsor of the event, and together with BCE and SECURITYMADEIN.LU, will try to give some answers during a one day event on April 27th at the heart of the historical Junglinster Longwave Transmitter (CLT-Centre d'Emission, Station Radio, 6141 Junglinster, Luxembourg). There will also be a Cybersecurity Breakfast and a Drone race organized by FPV Racing Luxembourg.
