Seminar Explains Future European Defense Researh and Development Program

The chapter, along with the Office for the Promotion of the European Funding Programs (GPPQ) and the General Directorate for Resources at the Portuguese Ministry of Defense (DGRDN), organized a March briefing on the future European Defense Research and Development (R&D) program in the Hall of Presidents of AIP-CCI. In attendance were Eduardo Maldonado, coordinator of the Horizon 2020 national contact points at GPPQ; Maj. Gen. Henrique Macedo, deputy director of the National Defense Resources; and Rear Adm. Mario C. Durao, PRT NA (Ret.), chapter president. The 80 participants represented the chapter, academia, industry and R&D centers interested in the program's future opportunities. A first phase of short-term project applications is planned for this year. The challenges are immense, with the objective of testing the process management procedures. If successful, the procedures will become the referential for the Integrated Defense R&D program in the next Multiannual Financial Framework (2021-27) of the European Commission.
