To give Slovenian stakeholders a more detailed insight into the functioning of the international defence environment, an event, “Business and development opportunities for civilian and defence stakeholders’ cooperation in the field of defence and security“, was organised as part of the SiEnE partnership.
Although the defence sector has always been strategically important and remains at the forefront of technological developments, defence forces today often use civilian applications and services developed and produced by private high-tech companies. Therefore, within the partnership SiEnE we encourage and enhance the synergies between civilian and defence research, to speed up innovation and strengthen technological sovereignty in the security and defence sectors.
The event aimed to present and promote the international defence environment, in which main programs and initiatives for international cooperation were presented by dr. Kim Mezga (TECES). Director mag. Matej Gajzer (TECES) presented successful results of the SiEnE partnership integration in the international programs and activities within the European Defence Agency (EDA), focusing on solving energy and environmental challenges and the green transition in the defence sector. He emphasised the importance of involving Slovenian stakeholders in EU defence areas, such as working groups (CapTechs) and international programmes and initiatives (PESCO, CF SEDSS, IF CEEDS). Based on the R&D study on developing smart and energy-efficient deployable camps, he presented development missions and related solutions for defence on developing smart and energy-efficient deployable camps; he presented development missions and related solutions for both defence and civilian purposes (dual-use).
The Slovenian Ministry of Defence (Si MoD) representatives Uroš KOROŠEC, General Director of the Logistics Directorate Col. Robert ŠIPEC, Head of the Equipping Division of the Logistics Directorate and mag. Željko KRALJ, Directors’ Advisor from the Logistics Directorate, pointed out the ministry’s needs and opportunities within partnership SiEnE, focusing on the development missions.
