Annual Conference 2020

Europe is facing up to the reality of before and after COVID-19. Today, four years after launching the EU defence initiatives, we have the right tools at our disposal to overcome diverse challenges through cooperation. The work of Europe’s armed forces throughout the pandemic has been lauded by our citizens, but it has equally highlighted key capabilities and investment in European defence.

“Sustaining European Defence” is therefore the timely focus of the European Defence Agency’s Annual Conference. The conference will provide the wider European defence community to discuss European defence cooperation and how it can be sustained in light of multiple and varying security challenges.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s Annual Conference will be held in the format of a ‘virtual event’, on Thursday, 3 and Friday, 4 December.
