Studies and analysis


In 2015 key personalities from European industry, government, the European Parliament and academia advised the Commission on establishing a preparatory action on research related to the common security and defence policy (CSDP). This group of personalities made recommendations for a long-term vision on EU-funded CSDP-related research to boost European defence cooperation. These recommendations address the overall scope and governance of future EU-funded CSDP research as well as highlight possible collaboration and coordination mechanisms. The overarching goal of the preparatory action and CSDP-related research was to create a framework that would facilitate a collaborative approach to defence among the EU countries.
