Isdefe collaborated with the “Council of Presidents of the fourteen countries in the EuroDefense network” at its annual meeting, organised by EuroDefense – Spain and held in Madrid from 23 to 25 May.
This event brought together the presidents of the EuroDefense Associations of the 14 member countries – Germany, Austria, Belgium, Czechia, Spain, France, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Portugal, Romania and United Kingdom – and the most important officials in their associations, consisting of civil and military professionals.
EuroDefense Spain relies on the support of its founding entities, CEOE and CESEDEN, whose goals are to promote a spirit of national defence and security, encourage Spanish society’s knowledge of aspects involving defence and security, and ensure Spain’s presence in and contribution to Europe’s defence and security needs.
To this end, EuroDefense Spain conducts studies involving the development of a common security and defence policy for the European Union, reflects on the status of the Spanish defence industry to aid it in its development, and it provides a forum where officials who are devoted to studying the aforementioned subjects can gather and engage in discussion.
For Isdefe, the Ministry of Defence’s in-house provider of Defence and Security services, supporting an event like this is in keeping with its area of activity, since Isdefe takes part in various European initiatives involving Defence and Security, such as the Permanent Structured Cooperation (PESCO) in the area of defence.
