France and the UK : Doing business together in simulation, training and systems integration

NDI, EEF’s defence and security experts, are bringing together SMEs from the UK and France with the aim of identifying collaborative business opportunities across both countries and in third markets.

Entitled ‘Systems Engineering, Simulation and Training’ the conference will begin on the evening of 1 February with a networking reception and dinner at which our speaker will be Patrice Caine, CEO of Thales Group. The next day we will hear from senior government and industry speakers from both countries followed by breakout groups and a business-to-business (B2B) fair at which conference delegates will have the opportunity to meet potential customers, suppliers and partners on a 1:1 basis.

Concluding on the morning of 3 February there will be a series of briefings by the UK and French armed forces on their current programmes and future requirements.
