OCCAR-EA participated in the International Defence and Security Exhibition, FEINDEF 2023 in Madrid, Spain from 17-19 May. The FEINDEF Organisation generously sponsored OCCAR´s own exhibition stand. This gave OCCAR a valuable platform to promote its role as an independent International Organisation for the management of complex, cooperative defence equipment programmes to industry and other key stakeholders. OCCAR Director, Mr. Joachim Sucker participated in a round table discussion entitled “ The Impact of New Joint Initiatives on Development and Acquisitions” alongside representatives from partner International Organisations including Mr. Emilio Fajardo Jimena, Director Industry, Synergies & Enablers (EDA), Ms. Stacy A. Cummings, General Manager, NSPA and Ms. Anne Fort, Head of Defence Industry and Market Policy Unit (DG DEFIS). Director Sucker also had the opportunity to meet with high level industry and government representatives during his two-day visit to the FEINDEF Trade Show.
