Brussels | Dec 04, 2013 European Defence Agency
Ideas and research go hand in hand. Novel ideas, experiments, new paths, new ways is what research needs. Also defence research.
For first time through EDA’s EURidiea initiative, the R&T community experiments with a forum where new ideas are tested with policy-makers, administrators and experts. EDA invited researchers throughout Europe to submit new ideas for new technologies for defence.
Researchers of 13 different countries reacted to our call, and sent in a total of 63 proposals. 33 were selected to be presented in the EUR-idea forum with a breakdown of 13 on Unmanned Systems and Technologies, 10 on Energy, and 10 on Materials and Nanotechnologies. The full list of proposals is available here.
This week, 6 December, researchers can convince decision-makers in this unique environment: the challenge is to win support and investment for the idea!
