European Defence Fund 2021 Calls for Proposals - Results
Following the first ever calls for proposals under the European Defence Fund (EDF), 60 collaborative defence research and development projects with a total EU support of almost €1.2 billion are selected for funding.
With the selected proposals, the EDF will support high-end defence capability projects such as the next generation of aircraft fighters, tanks and ships, as well as critical defence technologies such as military cloud, AI, semiconductors, space, cyber or medical counter- measures. It will also spearhead disruptive technologies, notably in quantum technologies and new materials and tap into promising SMEs and start-ups.
