The value of transatlantic cooperation in the space, security and defence sectors

AmCham EU is pleased to launch its position on 'Space, Security and Defence'. The brochure examines the state of play and the importance of continued transatlantic cooperation in these three key strategic sectors. As new regulations and policies are being developed on both sides of the Atlantic to support space, security and defence, each section of our publication concludes with tailored sector-specific policy recommendations.

During the event, speakers will address opportunities and challenges for transatlantic industrial cooperation in the future, particularly in the context of new regulations and policies introduced in Brussels and in Washington. Join us for the launch and explore the links between the space, security and defence sectors.
