Comisia Europeana a anuntat astazi alocarea a 1.2 miliarde de euro pentru sustinerea industriei de aparare din Europa, suma fiind una menita sa finanteze diverse proiecte din aceasta industrie in cursul urmatorilor ani, dupa cum puteti vedea si mai jos.
With the decision, the EU is funding high-end defense capability projects such as next generation of fighter aircraft, armored vehicles and ships, as well as critical defense technologies in the areas of space, cyber, military cloud, artificial intelligence, semiconductors, and medical countermeasures.
The projects will also spearhead disruptive technologies, notably in quantum technologies and new materials. Categories which receive notable funding are Air combat (around €190 million), Ground combat (around €155 million), Naval combat (around €103 million) and Air & Missile defense (around €100 million). Space-related projects are supported with about €50 million. With €38 million invested in projects supporting cyber defense R&D, the EU funds joint cyber defense capability development.
Support is also provided to promising projects involving cross-border SMEs and start-ups under the dedicated SME category with 24 projects receiving funding. Overall, SMEs account for around 43% of the entities participating in the projects.
Following the adoption of the Commission award decision, the grant agreements with the consortia will be signed and projects start delivering concrete results. The objective is to support the competitiveness of the EU defense industry, the development of the key technologies our armed forces need and strengthen the Union’s security.
Today, we approved an investment of €1.2 billion to support 61 industrial R&D projects for defence capabilities.
