Business Finland, in cooperation with Association of Finnish Defence and Aerospace Industries – AFDA, is organizing a Finland-Italy EDF workshop and matchmaking event on Tuesday, March 5, 2024, from 09:30 to 16:00 at Team Finland House.
The European Defence Fund (EDF) provides €8 billion over the years 2021-2027 for defence research and development in all operational and technological domains (land, sea, air, space, cyber, information, energy, materials, CBRN, etc.) through annual work programs. At the event, companies from Italy, lead by Leonardo, and Finland will present their respective technological clusters of interest and potential areas of cooperation.
The event will also offer networking opportunities between Italian and Finnish companies, offering both the opportunity to pitch ideas and expertise. This is a great opportunity to forge winning defence research and development consortia as well as getting to know other participants in order to extend your international network and create strategic partnerships.
