Abstract

The aim of this research is to unpack the main characteristics of an emerging ecosystem for the use of unmanned aerial vehicles (henceforth UAVs or drones) for livestock management in rural France. The ecosystem is initiated through a national policy initiative with the view of enhancing environmental and economic sustainability in agriculture, specifically livestock management. The paper explores the innovation, institutional and knowledge attributes of ecosystems and the role of intermediary organisations in their development through both implementing and informing entrepreneurial policy. The research advances understanding on the role of UAV-driven entrepreneurial ecosystems (EEs) in environmental and economic sustainability of agriculture and rural areas and by highlighting priority areas for potential interventions which could support such early-stage EEs to evolve and flourish.
