News about Innovation

European Commission



On 14 December the European Commission (EC) organised the first meeting of an expert group under the name "as-if Programme Committee" relating to the launch of the Pilot Project (PP) and Preparatory Action (PA) in the field of Defence Research. As to the Pilot Project, in compliance with the delegation agreement signed with EC on 16/11/2015, EDA had provided options for the work plan. Thanks to this upstream role of EDA, the "as-if Programme Committee" converged quickly on one preferred topic for each of the two activities of the PP (one relating to disruptive technologies, one related to certification and standardisation). EDA is now preparing the calls for proposals with the objective to issue them by early February 2016.
