On 7 May the NITEC conference, held in Madrid, Spain, came to a close. This year, over 500 senior representatives from NATO, as well as from European and North American industry attended the conference to discuss NATO C4ISR business opportunities.
NITEC is a collaborative venture between the NATO Communications and Information Agency (NCI Agency) and AFCEA Europe. Held annually, this conference draws high-level defence experts from NATO, the Allied militaries, industry and academia to discuss the latest technological developments and to collaborate on NATO C4ISR business opportunities and major procurements.
This year's conference, held 5 - 7 May 2015, focused on Applications, Education and Training in C4ISR.
In addition to the formal conference sessions, each day during NITEC 2015, NCI Agency representatives offered advice on how to do business with NATO (i.e. contracting mechanisms such as the Basic Ordering Agreement). The exhibition provided a close look at cutting-edge hard and software applications and the AFCEA Business-to-Business (B2B) Speed Dating Workshop allowed industry participants the chance to meet each other during pre-arranged bilateral meetings to find new business opportunities.
