The European Defence Agency (EDA) supports its 26 member states – all EU countries except Denmark – in improving their defence capabilities and supporting the European defence industry technological base (EDITB) through European cooperation.

The European Defence Agency – Luxembourg Infoday is organised by Luxinnovation in cooperation with the European Defence Agency (EDA) and the Luxembourg Directorate of Defence.


 9:20 – 10:00

Welcome & Introduction

Luxinnovation supports the ecosystem in targeting the defence industry opportunities offered by the European Defence Agency (EDA), notably within EDA’s Capability Technology (CapTech) Groups.

The CapTechs Groups are in charge of identifying R&T projects that will contribute to overcome the technology gaps (TBB) that have been identified within European defence research priorities considering future defence capability needs and emerging technologies.  In the frame of these CapTechs, research and technology ad-hoc projects and studies on commonly agreed priorities can be supported with national funding on a direct award basis.
