European Commission presented yesterday a Communication on the Commission’s further contribution to European defence and a Roadmap on critical technologies for Security and Defence. It gives clues on identification of technologies critical for EU security and defence, boosting them through European (RTD&I) programmes and aims at ensuring that defence considerations are better taken into account in civilian European RTD&I programmes. Link to EC communication.
EXCEED was funded in the context of Preparatory Action on Defence Research (PADR) launched by the European Commission in 2017 to assess and demonstrate the added-value of EU supported defence research and technology that paved the way to the new European Defence Programme (2021-2027).
