Save the date – Conference ‘Fostering Skills for Europe’s Defence Industries’ on 9-10 October 2019, Latresne (Bordeaux)

At a time when the EU is developing the European Defence Fund, the need for a skilled workforce and to attract new talents to a fast-evolving sector appears all the more necessary. A 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 aims at building on the work of previous and existing initiatives to tackle the issue of skill gaps in the defence sector.

The event, co-organised by the European Commission and AEROCAMPUS Aquitaine, will focus on the vocational education system meeting the needs of defence industries, innovative approaches in higher education for defence-related skills and enhancing the attractiveness of the defence sector for new talents.

The conference programme and registration will be available soon.
