With the entry into force of the new directive on defence and security procurement (Directive 2009/81/EC) on 21 August 2009, this seminar will explain and analyse the new provisions that were introduced; it will also examine how the implementation process is being carried out in some of the Member States. This seminar will provide a unique platform for the participants to share and exchange their experiences.

There will be a series of presentations from public officials, academics and other experts, followed by discussions. Participants will be encouraged to interact and exchange views.

Target group
The seminar is intended for public officials from the EU Member States, candidate countries and European institutions and organisations. The seminar should also be of interest to industry and service providers in the defence sector, as well as to academics, lawyers and other persons working in this field.

The seminar will be conducted in English, with simultaneous interpretation into French. Please note that interpretation will be subject to a minimum number of participants requiring translation. Please indicate your language of preference on the registration form.
