The abstract of debate session 1-4 on "Private financing of defence technology development" is now on-line. View or download the PDF from the abstracts page.
Private funds may help to solve asynchrony between funding years of national governments and venture capital could be used to initially finance capability developments. In many sectors of the economy other than defence private funding is the norm or is commonly used to provide products or services to the government and citizens.
In this session Mr. Maarten Stikkelorum will introduce and discuss alternate funding sources to resolve capability shortfalls based on a concrete list derived from the EDA continued capability watch study.
