Fostering Skills for Europe’s Defence Industries


Conference organised by the European Commission and Aerocampus Aquitaine on

9-10 October 2019 in Bordeaux, France



One year after the launch of the European Defence Skills Partnership (EDSP), and at a crucial time for Europe, with the start of the new European Commission and European Parliament for the period 2019-2024, this conference built on the work of previous and existing initiatives to tackle the issue of the skills gaps in the Defence Sector.


The event showcased innovative practices that are being carried out across Europe, and allowed participants to discuss how these practices, as well as new initiatives, could be concretely developed, go cross-border, get up-scaled at European level.
