Join us at NITEC Connect on 16-17 June 2021

A free virtual event!

The NATO Communications and Information Agency (NCI Agency) will host the next installment of its free virtual industry conference, NITEC Connect, from 16 to 17 June 2021.

This edition of the conference will focus on enhancing NATO's resilience through stronger partnerships. We will explore different kinds of collaboration in this two-day event, from our relationships with our industry partners, to our new framework for collaborating with not-for-profit organizations.

From collaborating on developing space technologies, to investigating emerging and disruptive technologies, to delivering the future of deployable communications and information systems, the NCI Agency knows that its industry partners are key to addressing the Alliance's complex challenges.

Join us for inspiring keynotes and plenary discussions, virtual networking and mentoring sessions.

"Previous NITEC Connect events have proven to be beneficial for those within industry to learn more about NATO's technological needs and how the NCI Agency plans to meet them. With this event, we hope participants gain a deeper understanding of how their expertise and solutions could be applied to NATO's challenges."

Jennifer Upton

NCI Agency Director of Acquisition

As a part of the event, the Agency will also be hosting a NATO Space Pitch Day. Companies from 30 Nations can submit a proposal to the featured problem statement by 16 May 2021.

"Alongside the NATO Space Centre, we at the NCI Agency are seeking to harness industry's expertise in support of NATO's most recent operational endeavour. Engaging with industry on technological challenges is always exciting; to do so in such a critical and growing area for the Alliance is a fantastic opportunity."

Major General Göksel Sevindik

NCI Agency Chief of Staff
