The Maritime CapTech meetings are held 3 times per year, with a maximum duration of 2 days. All information is shared via the EDA’s online collaborative workspace. In addition to CapTech meetings workshops dedicated to specific topics are organised to investigate areas and promote cooperation.
To become a Maritime CapTech member (CapTech Governmental Expert - CGE or CapTech non-Gonvernmental Expert - CnGE), please follow the instructions included in the R&T General site, and be aware that your request will be forwarded to the relevant CNC. The approval of the CNC will be needed to become a CGE or CnGE, and also for your participation in a CapTech event.
The activities of the CapTech Naval systems are guided by the Maritime CapTech Strategic Research Agenda (SRA). The SRA’s vision is to sustain and further develop European naval capabilities, taking into account operational, economical and societal trends but also with consideration to the need for coordination with European civil maritime stakeholders and the need for enhancing and sustaining the European Naval Technological and Industrial base. The SRA, provides a thorough assessment of the naval technical field, factoring in military, civil and industrial trends, to derive key technology areas that address known present and potential future operational capability shortfalls (“gaps”). Prioritization of these technology items, which is regarded as an iterative, living process, results in a long-term vision for the CapTech, which outlines critical R&T needs, investment plans and roadmaps that outline possible paths for collaborative projects. The next major update of the SRA is scheduled for 2018.
Based on the SRA, any CapTech member can propose ideas for new activities (projects, workshops, seminars, etc.) at any meeting.
