Resilient Threat Management 2013 – Registration is Open!

Brussels - 07 February, 2013

EDA and the Irish Presidency of the Council of the European Union are proud to announce the Resilient Threat Management 2013 Conference. The event will take place on 4 to 6 March in Brussels and take stock of EDA’s efforts so far while looking forward at what is needed to ensure a high level of preparedness for countering threats – IEDs and beyond – in the future, at home and on deployed operations.

5 and 6 March Open to the Public

Gathering senior decision makers from among others the Irish Department of Defence, EU Military Staff, NATO, FBI, EUROPOL, ISAF and Guardia Civil, the High Level Conference on 6 March promises to shed light on threat management beyond 2020 and how we can establish robust civil-military institutional infrastructures to be able to accommodate the palette of threats that may be faced. Hosted at the Royal Military Academy, the audience of the three-hundred-seat venue will witness dynamic panel discussions interweave with visionary and thought-provoking interventions.

5 March is dedicated to a smaller Expert Conference (but hosted at the Royal Military Academy as well). Focus will be on understanding the future global context and its main drivers. It will also delve into the future of cooperative capability development and explore technological opportunities.
