The European Defence Fund is being launched – now is the time to be active
Tuija Karanko, Secretary General of the ‎Association of Finnish Defence and Aerospace Industries (AFDA), is involved with the European Defence Fund's project development programmes on a daily basis. The EU established the European Defence Fund in the summer of 2017, to coordinate the defence investments and development work of its Member States. Less than a year into the Fund’s activities, we asked Karanko to give her expert opinion on the pros and cons of the programmes from the Finnish perspective.
