EU Industry will now be able to submit collaborative defence project proposals through the dedicated EDF portal page.
This follows the decision taken on 30 March 2023 when the European Commission adopted the third annual Work Programme under the European Defence Fund (EDF) and the recent adoption of the budget complement enabling the allocation of more than €1 billion for 7 calls for proposals.
The EDF 2023 Calls for proposals will support projects across the capability spectrum and in critical domains.
The deadline for applicants to submit proposals is 22 November 2023. Submitted project proposals will then be assessed following a competitive selection process.
