Factsheet: Strategic Context Cases (SCCs)

Factsheet Strategic Context Cases
When, in June 2018, EDA’s Steering Board in Capability Directors formation endorsed the revision of the Capability Development Plan (CDP) and its 11 European Capability Development Priorities (see list below), they also made clear that those priorities should be implemented in an output-oriented way to facilitate the generation of cooperative projects aimed at closing identified capability shortfalls, while striving to contribute to more coherence of the European capability landscape. To this end, it was agreed that the CDP implementation process had to be supported by the elaboration of so-called ‘Strategic Context Cases’ (SCCs) to be prepared by EDA in a close dialogue with a wide network of experts from Member States, the EU institutions, other relevant multinational stakeholders as well as defence industry representatives.
