In Innovation, International Partnership

Earlier this week, DG Grow organised the Info Day for EDIDP, the European defence industrial development programme. This programme offers co-financing for collaborative defence development projects with a budget of €500 million for 2019-2020. EDIDP serves as the pilot for EDF (European Defence Fund), which will run from 2021-2027.
