On 25 March, the NATO C4ISR Industry Conference & TechNet International 2014 in Bucharest, Romania, kicked off in presence of over 600 participants. During the three day event, the Agency's senior leadership will provide Transatlantic Industry leaders first notice on upcoming business opportunities in NATO C4ISR, cyber and missile defence, and other areas to be highlighted later this year at the 2014 NATO Summit in Wales.
Welcoming speeches and the Conference opening were provided by MGEN Koen Gijsbers (rtd), General Manager, NCI Agency and MGEN Klaus-Peter Treche, DEU AF (rtd), General Manager, AFCEA Europe. Subsequently, distinguished speakers including Mr Victor-Viorel Ponta, Prime Minister of Romania addressed the audience.
The event will give early warning of potential business opportunities coming up in the next 18 months so that Industry can prepare for competition. Some of the projects are yet to be approved by NATO's resource committees and may be impacted by changes in NATO's operations and missions. Several projects however have already been authorized and call for bids will be launched.
