EDRIN – European Defence Research and Innovation Network
EDRIN is the group of independent, solution driven, not-for profit research organizations with a substantial role in defence research and development as part of a broader research portfolio. EDRIN has been founded in 2019 by a core group of six members: TNO, Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft, FOI, VTT, CEA and ONERA.
At its inception, EDRIN also outlined its mission and its view on the development of the European Defense Innovation Ecosystem in this White Paper.
After EDRIN has first been introduced to the broader public during the High-Level-Defence-Event of the Finnish EU-Presidency in October of 2019, EDRIN will now strongly increase its outreach activities across the entire European Union to ensure a broad representation of RTOs from possibly all Member States.
