The European Union has launched numerous initiatives to boost and strengthen European security and defence. The European Defence Fund (EDF) as one of the core elements of these initiatives is entering a decisive phase during the Austrian EU Presidency in the 2nd half of 2018.
This conference is designed to provide full insight in the specific potential, the opportunities and the challenges of this unprecedented initiative convening all relevant stakeholders representing EU institutions, EU member states, industry, and the research and technology community. High-level representatives from the European Commission, the European Parliament and the European Defence Agency will deliver keynote addresses. Several panels will look in detail discussing expectations, strategies and further actions required to make best use of this comprehensive instrument to ensure EU added value.
The official invitation with the detailed programme and further information will be distributed in June 2018. Additional conference material will be available on our upcoming website www.edf-vienna2018.at.
