OCCAR organized today for the first time ever a joint seminar with ASD, the Aerospace and Defence Industries Association of Europe. The seminar brought together more than 70 representatives of defence companies from across Europe to learn about OCCAR and the current and future business opportunities that may emerge from ongoing European defence initiatives such as PESCO. The event focused on the forthcoming procurement of night vision capability equipment by OCCAR on behalf of Belgium and Germany, for which OCCAR will use an EU-wide tendering procedure.
On 12 September a ceremony to handover the top management of the Organisation for Joint Armament Cooperation Executive Administration was held in its premises in Bonn in front of its Board of Supervisors and corporate committees, national, industry, NSPA and EDA representatives .
Today we have celebrated the 20th anniversary of the signature of the Convention of the Organisation Conjointe de Cooperation en Matiere d’Armement, as well as its growth with the official inauguration of the new Bonn premises.
The event has counted with the presence of the Ambassador of the Federal Ministry of Defence of NRW, the Mayor of Bonn, representatives of our Corporate Boards and Committees, Programme Board and Committees representatives, Industry representatives, the Chief Executive of EDA and the General Manager of NSPA.
