Leveraging Technology for Our Collective Defense
About the Program
CEPA’s Defense Tech Initiative (DTI) helps the United States and its partners and allies leverage emerging and disruptive technologies to enhance collective defense and prepare for future threats. In an increasingly contested world, the ability to do this more effectively than competitors such as China and Russia will shape the global role of the transatlantic Alliance over the next decade. Bringing together U.S. and European policymakers, military officials, industry leaders, and tech experts, the work aims to foster dialogue and strengthen transatlantic cooperation on defense tech. Through strategic convenings and cutting-edge analysis, the Initiative seeks to harmonize transatlantic perspectives, encourage public-private collaboration, spark innovation and investment, and build a more robust policy framework around defense technology issues.
