Event Description

This seminar will give you insight into the provisions and application of the defence and security procurement directive and the wider initiatives towards closer defence and security cooperation and their impact on procurement.

As the evaluation report on the Defence and Security Directive 2009/81/EC from 2016 has demonstrated, there is still need for guidance and improvement as to the effective implementation and application of the directive. The focus of this seminar will be the interpretation and practical effects of the directive and experts in the field will present these topics in an accessible way. Other issues that will be discussed include:

  • The interaction of the directive and Article 346 TFEU.
  • The objective of a more efficient and competitive defence and security sector through the close monitoring of the procurement rules.
  • The European Defence Fund and its implications for defence procurement.

How will it help you?

At the end of this seminar you should have a good understanding of:

  • The regime for defence and security procurement at European level.
  • The application of the directive on defence and security procurement (Directive 2009/81/EC) and its practical implications.
  • The wider initiatives in the field of defence and security cooperation having an impact on defence procurement.

 Who will benefit most?

The seminar is intended for public officials from the EU Member States, candidate countries, representatives from European organisations and bodies, who would like to familiarise themselves with the specific procurement rules in the defence and security sector and the new initiatives in the field of defence and security cooperation. The seminar should also be of interest to industry and service providers in this sector, as well as to academics, lawyers and other people working in this field. The seminar will provide a unique platform for sharing experiences.
