Innovating together to ensure security: HEDI and DIANA

Innovations have long been a part of defence and accordingly are being increasingly promoted. Two international initiatives in the area of defence innovation are particularly worthy of mention: One is HEDI from the European Defence Agency EDA, the other is DIANA from NATO. Switzerland has already expressed its interest in participating in HEDI and would also be interested in DIANA if it were to be opened to third countries.
