Innovation across the Atlantic

Online meeting with Defense Innovation Unit (DIU)


CenSec is hosting an online defence industry meeting on Danish-American cooperation on innovation.

The purpose of the meeting is to present possibilities for defence innovation via CenSec’s collaboration with DIU (Defense Innovation Unit).

DIU is the national American defence cluster organised under the Department of Defense, and it focuses, as CenSec, on classic defence industry and defence innovation as well as dual-use and the cross field between the military and civile sectors, including industry and research.

CenSec has been in dialogue with DIU since 2016 and the two clusters collaborate on innovation.

We are looking forward to presenting DIU and the many possible collaborations on innovation across the Atlantic at this kick-off event.
