The session introduces the participants to the safety and security dimension of space. In particular, this session aims at giving a first overview on the European Defense Fund (EDF) and its multiannual perspective as one Union’s key initiatives to support collaborative defence research and development, and to foster an innovative and competitive defence industrial base. With a budget of about €8 billion for the period 2021-2027 the EDF has earmarked €2.7 billion for the funding of collaborative defence research and €5.3 billion euros for collaborative capability development projects complementing national contributions.
