The European Defence Conference 2012 is the second edition of an interactive two day conference with many possibilities for discussion, debate and Europe wide networking, organised in consultation with EDA, NATO and ASD. The EDC2012 will be held in the Dorint Hotel Don Giovanni in Prague, Czech Republic on 9 and 10 October 2012.

The aim of the conference is to foster cooperation in the defence and security sector between private companies, research organisations, governments and international organisations. The programme provides opportunities for discussion on policies and procedures, but also on scientific and technical challenges for the armed forces.
The 2012 edition focusses on the implementation of the "NATO Smart Defence initiative", "EDA Pooling & Sharing", "Obstacles towards long term defence cooperation", "Opportunities presented by regional cooperation" and "Public Private Partnership opportunities". As in 2011 R&T project results and cooperative project proposals will be presented during "snap-shot and poster sessions".
