Information


New Possibilities & New Challenges in Financing Defence and Security Actions within the European Union

With the European Defence Action Plan, the EU enters a new field of action. The message is clear: Europe must take greater responsibility for its security. The European Commission launched the European Defence Fund (EDF) with 5.5 billion Euros per year to finance defence research and capability. For Ministries of Defence (MoD) this is a new process as they have never dealt with EU money before.






European Defence Funding – Access your Opportunities

Get to know the procedures under the newly created European Defence Action Plan. Explore various defence and security funding opportunities – for defence consortiums and SMEs but also as a public authority. This conference will give you a comprehensive overview that highlights the differences between various options. Receive first hand insight in the current negotiations on European Defence Fund.

  • What are the possibilities under the new European Defence Fund – for research projects and military capabilities
  • What are advantages and challenges in Preparatory Action for Defence Research (PADR) and EU Defence Industrial Development Programme (EDIDP)
