IEL Director presents at European Defence Agency

On 12 November 2015, IEL Director Professor Martin Trybus was invited by  the European Defence Agency (EDA) in Brussels to present his research on the EU Defence and Security Procurement Directive 2009/81/EC, to the EDA Defence Acquisition Experts Network (DAEN), the dedicated network of defence procurement experts in which EDA participating Member States and Norway participate. 

His presentation drew from his recent monograph, Buying Defence and Security in Europe: The EU Defence and Security Procurement Directive in Context (CUP, 2014).

The EDA, without prejudice to European Commission’s mandate and responsibilities in  this domain, is supporting its participating Member States (all EU Member States except Denmark) in the implementation of the Defence and Security Procurement Directive through the development of dedicated tools, including establishment and exchange of best practices and lessons learned."
