Call open to support clusters in the defence sector going international

A group of professionals connected to each other

The Commission published today the call for proposals for "Clusters Go International" for the Defence and Security Sector. It aims to support European defence and security-related clusters and business network organisations to:

  • intensify collaboration across borders with other non-defence industrial clusters;¬†
  • develop and implement joint strategies in areas of dual use technologies, products and services towards non-EU countries.

Financed under COSME, the call is in line with the European Defence Action Plan, adopted by the Commission in 2016, notably for improving access to EU funding by the defence supply chains, in particular SMEs.

The deadline for submission is 13 December 2017.
