The University Centre of Defence in San Javier, the Directorate General for Armament and Materiel of the Spanish Ministry of Defence, the Spanish Air Force Academy, and ISDEFE have the honour to inform you that the 4th National Conference on R&D in Defence and Security will be held at the Spanish Air Force Academy in San Javier (Murcia) on 16th, 17th, and 18th November 2016.

In line with the previous editions, this conference appears as a forum and a meeting point for all the agents related to R&D within the field of Defence and Security: Universities, University Centers of Defence, the University Center for the Spanish Guardia Civil, public research institutions, companies, laboratories, etc.

Additionally, the conference promotes the presentation and dissemination of current research and development in the civilian context with results and innovative methodologies that are potentially applicable to national Defence and Security, resulting in the known as dual-use technologies. These innovative methodologies, funded by several national organisations, have been shared annually since 2013 at the National Conferences on R&D in Defence and Security, with a fair amount of success which will hopefully be repeated at this edition.

We are looking forward to your valuable contribution to the conference. You will find all the information you need on this website.
