The general aim of EDAMIC is to prepare personnel to manage projects and programmes effectively in an international environment. Hence the goal of EDAMIC is to extend and deepen the professional knowledge in areas such as:

  • Structure of the partner nations as well as defence acquisition organisations
  • Understanding of differences in national acquisition processes and procedures
  • Knowledge about the European industrial base and its relationship to the national economies and political agenda

On the other hand, it is of equivalent importance to build a reliable european network, which is an indispensable premise to arrange an effective collaboration especially in the field of armaments. EDAMIC is a forum for training, meeting, presentations, discussion and collaborative thinking, designed to facilitate a better understanding of national differences (policies, methods, decision processes, culture…)

This course is open to civil and military participants with the rank of lieutenant colonel/colonel or civilian equivalent. Each LoI nation plus Belgium and the Netherlands is invited to nominate participants for this course. In addition one slot is being offered for one delegate from the European Defence Agency (EDA) and the Organisation Conjointe de Coopération en matière d'Armement (OCCAR) respectively. Additional nations are invited as decided between the organising nations. The session is given over 2 weeks.
