TRACK | Digital Defense

The new security situation that has emerged with the war in Ukraine sheds an entirely new light on the role of Danish research in the development of our defense.

In the Digital Defense track, we focus on the role of research, how existing research can and should be utilized for defense purposes through Dual Use, and what the collaboration between research, private companies, and the Danish defense should look like now and in the future.

You can also learn about the latest trends in cyber defense, the integration of AI in defense and weapon technology, and how critical infrastructure can be monitored and defended against hostile attacks.
