This three day conference is divided into an Exploitation Seminar (Government Only, 4 March), an Expert Conference (5 March, open to public) and a High Level Day (6 March, open to public).
4 March is dedicated to a smaller Expert Conference, which will be held at EDA’s own premises. Focus will be on understanding the future global context and its main drivers. It will also delve into the future of cooperative capability development and explore technological opportunities.
Gathering senior decision makers from among others the Irish Department of Defence, EU Military Staff, NATO, FBI, EUROPOL, ISAF and Guardia Civil, the High Level Conference on 6 March promises to shed light on threat management beyond 2020 and how we can establish robust civil-military institutional infrastructures to be able to accommodate the palette of threats that may be faced. Hosted at the Royal Military Academy, the audience of the three-hundred-seat venue will witness dynamic panel discussions interweave with visionary and thought-provoking interventions.
