Wingcopter GmbH is a German aerospace company that develops and operates cutting-edge electric cargo drones to provide last-mile delivery services for third parties across a wide range of geographies. The funding will be used to finance the deployment of efficient and green middle- and last-mile logistics solutions using Wingcopter drones, thus replacing current expensive and emission-heavy road or air transportation.
The project will contribute to supporting the development, production, deployment and operation of Wingcopter's electric unmanned aerial vehicles (eUAVs), enabling the company to provide last-mile delivery services at a global scale and a competitive cost while reducing greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution caused by fossil fuel-based means of transport.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF EIB
The EIB Complaints Mechanism is designed to facilitate and handle complaints against the EIB by individuals, organizations or corporations affected by EIB activities. When exercising the right to lodge a complaint against the EIB, any member of the public has access to a two-tier procedure, one internal - the Complaints Mechanism Office - and one external - the European Ombudsman. A complaint can be lodged via a written communication addressed to the Secretary General of the EIB, via email to the dedicated email address: email@example.com, by completing the online complaint form available at the following address: http://www.eib.org/complaints/form via fax or delivered directly to the EIB Complaints Mechanism Division, any EIB local representation office or any EIB staff. For further details, check: http://www.eib.org/attachments/strategies/complaints_mechanism_policy_en.pdf
When dissatisfied with a complaint to the EIB Complaints Mechanism, citizens can then turn towards the European Ombudsman. A memorandum of Understanding has been signed between the EIB and the European Ombudsman establishes that citizens (even outside of the EU if the Ombudsman finds their complaint justified) can turn towards the Ombudsman on issues related to 'maladministration' by the EIB. Note that before going to the Ombudsman, an attempt must be made to resolve the case by contacting the EIB. In addition, the complaint must be made within two years of the date when the facts on which your complaint is based became known to you. You can write to the Ombudsman in any of the languages of the European Union.
