This year, following logos’ acquisition of Business Bridge Europe, we are thrilled to participate in the preparation of this event—harnessing our expertise in the collaboration of the brands of mci group in Brussels, namely logos, Business Bridge Europe and MCI Brussels.

The conference will feature insightful panel discussions, interactive workshops, and networking opportunities to foster collaboration and cooperation among key stakeholders. By bringing together government officials, military representatives, industry experts, and civil society leaders, we aim to facilitate a comprehensive and inclusive dialogue on critical defence and security issues.

Key themes to be explored during the conference include:

  • Strengthening European Defence Cooperation: In the face of evolving threats, the conference will discuss the need for enhanced collaboration and interoperability among European nations and strategic partners. Promoting joint initiatives can bolster European defence’s effectiveness and strategic autonomy.
  • Advancing Innovation in Defence and Security: Technological advancement is vital to developing a defence and security apparatus. The conference will discuss how to promote innovation and explore leveraging it to address evolving threats and enhance Europe’s defence capabilities.
  • Consolidation of the European Defence Industrial Base: Recognizing the importance of a robust defence industrial base, the conference will deliberate on policies and strategies to fulfil this goal and enhance the block’s strategic autonomy.

The 3rd European Defence and Security Conference represents a critical juncture for Europe to reassess its defence and security priorities, forge strong partnerships, and chart a united path forward.

logos and Business Bridge Europe invite all stakeholders and individuals committed to shaping Europe’s defence and security landscape to join us in Brussels on 10 October.
