The D(EFTECH)-Day stand for action like its famous homonyme D-Day. Being a workshop, a conference, a presentation or an exhibition, the goal of these days is to provide an opportunity for the armed forces to meet experts from the academy and industry in order to determine the real possibilities (differentiate the hype from the real) and readiness level of a technological domain. We are always looking for new exciting topics and new formats to run the day, so don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any innovative suggestion or idea!
