eBOS attends the 1st Euro-Mediterranean Forum, EUROMED!

On July 6th 2022, eBOS R&D Program Manager/Researcher, Dr. Andrianos Yiorkas, participated in the 1st Euro-Mediterranean Forum for Defence SMEs, EUROMED, held in Toulon, France.

EUROMED was organised by the French armament procurement agency (DGA, Direction Générale de l’Armement) and its partners. This year’s Forum was dedicated to SMEs aiming to encourage the creation of winning consortia within the context of the European Defence Fund (EDF). EDF is a European Commission’s key initiative supporting collaborative Defence research and development while fostering an innovative and competitive Defence industrial base.

The EUROMED Forum brought together French and Southern-European SMEs from Croatia, Cyprus, Greece, Italy, Malta, Portugal, Slovenia and Spain, through the organisation of face-to-face meetings seeking to establish and strengthen links between the SMEs.

Dr. Andrianos joined more than 80 participants whereby various topics were discussed, such as defense and security, naval, aeronautics and space, optics, optronic, microelectronics, secure communications, cyber protection.

The face-to-face meetings were supplemented by informal meetings between EUROMED attendees and companies, which exhibited their products and services at the venue.
