EDTA and EURODEFENSE sign partnership agreement

The complementary goals and interests of EURODEFENSE and EDTA have led to a logical relationship where information exchange and mutual support will help both associations in their endeavour to improve European Security and Defence. The main cooperation under this agreement will be on European and national defence policy issues pertaining to defence technology, capabilities and industry. 
The partnership agreement allows for cooperation on a European level, but also arranges and fosters cooperation between the 25 member associations of both federations on a national level. 

The agreement was signed on 12 November 2015 during the 21th annual international EURODEFENSE conference in Luxemburg.
