Call for improved “branding”, access to funding and an efficient market
Technology is everywhere. For the armed forces the availability of top class technology is often a matter of life and death. Technological knowledge, funding for technology and capability development, efficient procedures and market rules are crucial for engineers and industry to support the armed forces effectively.
