Swiss join EU defence efforts

Switzerland is to take part in its first European defence research project, the European Defence Agency has announced.

Switzerland will participate in an EDA project for the first time since the country’s ministry of defence signed an agreement with the agency in 2012, the EDA said today. The country will participate in the PASEI project, which is researching ways to protect autonomous systems against enemy interference. The project is being led by Germany, with Finland and Austria also participating.

Jorge Domecq, the EDA’s chief exective, welcomed Switzerland’s involvement in a statement and said that he hoped the country will participate in more EDA projects in future. He said that PASEI is “an important topic on which European cooperation makes sense, even beyond EU borders”.
