The European Defence Agency at six

Vilém KOLÍN

In 2010, it will be six years since the establishment of the European Defence Agency (EDA), which seeks to improve defence capabilities of the Member States of the European Union (EU) in crisis management to sustain Common Security and Defence Policy (CSDP). The article describes the EDA Strategic Framework, consisting of four basic strategic documents that correspond with the EDA main tasks in the area of defence capabilities development, research and technology co-operation, armaments co-operation, and the creation of the European Defence Equipment Market (EDEM), while strengthening the European Defence Technological and Industrial Base (EDTIB). Against the background of the EDA Strategic Framework, the article maps the current major EDA projects and identifies the main challenges the EDA will face in the near future.
