EECARO's feedback on the White Paper on options for enhancing support for research and development involving technologies with dual-use potential

On the 24th of January 2024, the European Commission presented the White Paper on options for dual use research in the new multiannual framework programme, as part of the Economic Security Package. The White Paper states that the current funding instruments (Horizon Europe and the European Defence Fund, but also the European Investment Bank instruments) do not provide sufficient opportunities for synergies and cross-fertilization between civil and defence technologies in the European industry. EECARO welcomes the opportunity to comment on the White Paper. Download detailed comments here.
