Nivitec present at the Festival du Jazz et du Film d’Altitude of Vercorin

Curious cultural mishmash, CinéJazz2336 takes its name from this mythical summit that is Crêt-du-Midi. This year, a round table on the theme of the mountain rescue was on the agenda with the presence of representatives of the Groupe d’Intervention Médical en Montagne (GRIMM), the Institut de Formation et de Recherche en Médecine de Montagne (Ifremmont) and Nivitec!

It was the opportunity for our team to interact with those who work in the field on a daily basis and to learn from their experience as well as to make an autonomous demonstration of flight proving that drone technology is also evolving to serve society.
