During the course of 2015 – 2017, Europe has witnessed a rapid change of its security environment due to new factors, modern threats and a steady increase of its security needs. Trend changing measures are being envisaged at EU level. The commission has issued a reflection paper on the future of European defence as part of the white paper process. Common military assets and the will of the EU “to engage at an unprecedented level in defence to support Member States” are being discussed. In order to create a defence union, all EU instruments, including EU funding, as well as the full potential of the Treaties shall be exploited.
 
What are the next steps? What are the opportunities and the threats regarding the European Defence Fund and the European Defence Industrial Development Programme? What are the views on the establishment of the military planning and conduct capability (MPCC) within the EU military staff (EUMS)?
 
These and other questions shall be raised and assessed from different perspectives, including from representatives of those mostly concerned: the military staff.
