EPC and EU-HYDEF Contribution Agreements signed

On 14 December 2022 during a brief ceremony in Brussels, the OCCAR-EA Director Matteo Bisceglia, and the Director-General ‘Defence Industry and Space’ of the European Commission Mr Pesonen (represented by Mr F. Arbault), signed the Contribution Agreements for two EDF Projects that OCCAR-EA will be managing under indirect management mode. The two projects are the European Patrol Corvette (EPC) and the European Hypersonic Defence Interceptor (EU-HYDEF).

The agreements were negotiated between OCCAR and the Commission in a very short timeframe, which is a strong indicator of the very positive cooperation between both organisations.

In his speech, the OCCAR-EA Director highlighted this good spirit and emphasized the objective that cooperation between OCCAR and the Commission should grow more and more in order to strengthen the European Defence Industry and to assist Europe in making its defence environment more independent from our strategic partner across the Atlantic.
