EWG26 – Energy Transition as an Operational Advantage for the Military

This report focuses on the policies, need and options for use of sustainable energy in major military combat systems like naval vessels, aircraft, vehicles and in military compounds, especially during operations. Energy transition could be a necessity to adapt to in a new fossil fuel free society and an opportunity to achieve a smaller logistical footprint or more effective military capabilities.

EWG23 – European defence cooperation on Education, Training and Simulation

European defence cooperation on education, training and simulation has many important advantages to enhance skills, share European military culture for our military men and women, and reduce costs. The importance of cooperative training and the intention to make training an element of the permanent structured cooperation has been agreed in the Lisbon Treaty. This intention was reinforced in more recent papers on European cooperation, but omitted in the European Defence Fund. Simulation technology for training goals was never mentioned. Hence, we believe cooperation on education, training and simulation needs more attention.
