The European Defence Agency is the place to go for European defence cooperation. The Agency supports the Council and the Member States in their effort to improve the European Union’s defence capabilities - a critical task in these challenging times.
It works on the basis of a new approach that draws together the whole defence spectrum, tailoring its work to the military needs of tomorrow, providing different and often innovative solutions.
Since its foundation in 2004, the EDA and its participating Member States have launched important projects, boosting helicopter availability, forming the European Air Transport Fleet and working to insert Unmanned Aircraft Systems into normal airspace, to name but a few. For more on our projects, see here.
EDA is pragmatic, cost effective and results oriented. It offers multinational solutions for capability improvement in a time where defence budget constraints foster the need for cooperation.
