European Defence Fund: EU to invest €832 million in 41 ambitious defence industrial projects
26 June 2023
Today, the Commission announced the results of the 2022 calls for proposals under the European Defence Fund (EDF) amounting to €832 million of EU funding in support of 41 joint defence research and development projects across the EU.
The outcome of the 2022 calls reaffirms that the EDF contributes to the EU's strategic autonomy and to creating a more competitive and integrated European defence technological and industrial base.
The 2022 call results also confirm the strong interest and active engagement of the EU defence industry in all call topics and demonstrate their strong commitment to the ambition pursued through the programme. Selected consortia bring together 550 entities from across the EU and Norway and strongly involve SMEs, which represent 39% of all entities.
