Dual-Use Conference 2017

 Dual-Use Conference – Drones & Space

A bottom-up approach towards a regional dual-use strategy

Technologies are changing rapidly in today’s business environment – also in the space industry and emerging drone industry – opening up to new opportunities and challenges.

This 1.5-day conference will bring together national and European authorities, defence/security-related businesses and knowledge institutions to learn more about the business perspectives in the dual-use areas of drones and space, as well as to stimulate the development of a regional dual-use strategy in Denmark. It will showcase interesting cases of dual-use companies and develop recommendations.

Business leaders, as well as leading technology experts and policy-makers, will present in-depth knowledge and analysis on trends and emerging/mature technologies as well as giving you the full market overview. As a business leader, you will gain knowledge on how to improve your business resilience to rapid market/technology changes by operating in both the defence and civilian sectors. 

The conference is taking place under the umbrella of the European Network of Defence-related Regions bringing different regions in Europe together in this area.


Target Groups

The conference targets the whole range of dual-use players from SMEs to Prime Contractors as well as public authorities, knowledge institutions and investment supporters from the EU and national systems.
